Test Overview
Test Methodology

Multiplex Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)

Test Usage

To detect genetic polymorphism between the patient (recipient) and the donor prior to the bone marrow transplant, in order to evaluate the engraftment status after the transplant.

Reference Range *

Interpretive report provided.

* Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.

Test Limitations

If the patient has a very low white blood cell count, the DNA yield may be insufficient to complete the analysis. In order to perform this test, both the patient's pre-transplant and the donor's specimen must be available.

Specimen Requirements
Collection Instructions

Collect blood in a lavender top tube. Refrigerate and send intact blood or bone marrow specimen within 48 hours of collection.

Alternate Specimen
The preferred specimen is whole blood collected in EDTA (lavender top). However, ACD (yellow top) and heparin (green top) may also be accepted.
Normal Volume
5 mL EDTA (lavender) whole blood. Extracted DNA is also acceptable if extracted in a CLIA certified laboratory.
