Multiplex Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
Cystic Fibrosis mutation panel for general population screening. This assay may be used for determination of carrier status in individuals who have a family history of cystic fibrosis, and refinement of carrier risk for those individuals who do not have a family history of cystic fibrosis. This panel includes genotyping for 60 mutations and variants within the CFTR gene. See http://www.pathology.med.umich.edu/handbook/Tables/INPLX_Mutations.pdf for complete listing of the tested mutations and variants.
Interpretive report provided.
This test will not detect mutations other than the 60 described above. The accuracy of reported probabilities are contingent upon the accuracy of the history provided. This test is intended only for carrier screening, not for the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis.
