Test Code MTRTI MatePair, Targeted Rearrangements, Oncology

Useful For

Second-tier testing in oncologic specimens when previous cytogenetic testing has detected an acquired chromosome abnormality of unknown significance

 

Determining the size, precise breakpoints, gene content, and any unappreciated complexity of abnormalities detected by other methods such as conventional chromosome and FISH studies

 

Providing important diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic information critical to proper patient management

Method Name

Mate-Pair Whole Genome Sequencing

Reporting Name

MatePair, Targeted, Oncology

Advise Express Mail or equivalent if not on courier service.



Necessary Information


1. Previous cytogenetic or FISH testing is required in order to perform this test. If previous testing was performed at another institution, supply a copy of those results. If sufficient information regarding the patient's known chromosome abnormality is not made available, this testing will be cancelled.

2. Provide a reason for referral with each specimen. The laboratory will not reject testing if this information is not provided, but appropriate testing and interpretation may be compromised or delayed.

3. Specimens that are submitted as cultured cells or cryo-frozen samples will need confirmation of abnormal karyotype with the specimen submitted to ensure that the abnormality is present before proceeding.
