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

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.
