CHROMOSOMAL ANALYSIS BLOOD FOR HEMATOLOGIC DISORDERS
Karyotype - Karyotyping - Chromosomes - Chromosome Study - Cytogenetics
Although bone marrow is the recommended specimen for hematological disorders, whole blood with a circulating blast count of 5% or greater is an acceptable alternative. The presence of circulating blasts in the peripheral blood is critical to the success of this test. The blast count should be 5% or greater.
Specimen Collection Requirements
Whole Blood, in a dark green (preservative-free sodium heparin) top tube
Room temperature within 24 hours of collection
Ambient: 24 hours; Refrigerated: Suboptimal, call Cytogenetics at (503) 413-4613
Clinical information including the indication for study must accompany the specimen. This should include treatment history and a copy of the most recent CBC result.
Classical G-Band Chromosomal Analysis
Cytogenetics interpretation provided. A computer generated karyotype is also provided with each study.
46,XX [number of cells analyzed], apparently normal female
46,XY [number of cells analyzed], apparently normal male
For questions regarding the report, please call (503) 413-4613.
