Initial Chimerism Testing:

Complete chimerism analysis requires 3 specimens. These specimens should be submitted when collected. An interpretive report will be provided once all specimens are received.

 

CHRGB / Chimerism-Recipient Germline (Pre)

CHIDB / Chimerism-Donor

CHIMU / Chimerism Transplant No Cell Sort or CHIMS / Chimerism Transplant Sorted Cells

 

Billing occurs with tests CHRGB / Chimerism-Recipient Germline (Pre) (for the Pre and Donor specimens) and CHIMU / Chimerism Transplant No Cell Sort (for unsorted Post specimens), or SORT1 / Chimerism Cell Sort 1 (Bill Only) and/or SORT2 / Chimerism Cell Sort 2 (Bill Only) (for sorted Post specimen). If an additional donor specimen is submitted, ADONO / Additional Chimerism Donor (Bill Only) will be performed at an additional charge.
