Order Code: 219501

CPT Codes:  81340, 81342, G0452

Indication:  Clinical Diagnosis

Required Patient Information: Clinical Diagnosis

Turn Around Time:  7-10 days

Specimen type:  Fresh tissue biopsy, paraffin embedded tissue, whole blood

Methodology: Multiplex PCR analysis targeting the V, D and J regions that flank the unique hypervariable antigen-binding region 3 (CDR3) of the TCR beta gene locus (3 multiplex mixes) and the V and J regions of TCR gamma gene locus are used to identify clonal T cell populations. This assay detects 98% of clonal T cell gene rearrangements.
