Test Catalog

Test ID: F8INV    
Hemophilia A F8 Gene, Intron 1 and 22 Inversion Mutation Analysis, Whole Blood

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

First-tier molecular testing for males affected with severe hemophilia A when a mutation has not been identified in the family


Determining hemophilia A carrier status for at-risk females, ie, individuals with a family history of severe hemophilia A

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

Detects the common inversion mutations within the F8 gene. Approximately 50% of affected males with severe hemophilia A have been shown to have an inversion.


It is recommended that the F8 inversion mutation be confirmed in an affected male or obligate carrier female prior to testing at-risk individuals.

Reflex Tests Lists tests that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial tests.

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

Maternal cell contamination testing will be performed for all cord blood specimens. A maternal whole blood sample with an order for MATCC / Maternal Cell Contamination, Molecular Analysis, Blood is also required to perform this test. (See Specimen Required for more details.)
