Test ID: LYNCH    
Lynch Syndrome Panel, Varies

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Establishing a diagnosis of Lynch syndrome

 

Identification of familial MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS2, or EPCAM mutations to allow for predictive testing in family members

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct genetic test or proper submission of the test request

This test includes next-generation sequencing, Sanger sequencing, array comparative genomic hybridization, and multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification to evaluate for mutations and large deletions/duplications in the MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS2, and EPCAM genes. Sanger sequencing may also be performed to confirm detected variants.

 

Prior Authorization is available for this assay; see Special Instructions.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
