Test Code: AFPADSO
Synonyms/Keywords

Prenatal Aneuploidy Detection, FISH

AF PADSO

Test Components

This test includes a charge for application of the first probe set (2 FISH probes) and professional interpretation of results.

Additional charges will be incurred for all reflex probes performed. Analysis charges will be incurred based on the number of cells analyzed per probe set. If no cells are available for analysis, no analysis charges will be incurred.

Ordering Guidance:

This test does not detect aneuploidy of chromosomes other than 13, 18, 21, X, or Y. This test does not detect other chromosomal or structural anomalies.

Low levels of mosaicism involving chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X, or Y may not be detected by this procedure.

Useful For
Screening for chromosomal aneuploidies of chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X, and Y in prenatal specimens
Specimen Requirements
Specimen Type Preferred Container/Tube Acceptable Container/Tube Specimen Volume Specimen Minimum Volume
(allows for 1 repeat)
Pediatric Minimum Volume
(no repeat)
Submit only 1 of the following specimens:
​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​
Amniotic fluid​ Amniotic fluid container​ 20-25 mL​ 2 mL​
Acceptable:
Chorionic villi
15-mL tube containing 15 mL of transport media​ 20-30 mg​ 2 mg​
Collection Processing Instructions

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

Amniotic fluid:

1. Optimal timing for specimen collection is during 14 to 18 weeks of gestation, but specimens collected at other weeks of gestation are also accepted. Provide gestational age at the time of amniocentesis.
2. Discard the first 2 mL of amniotic fluid.
3. Place the tubes in a refrigerate/ambient mailer.
4. Fill remaining space with packing material.
Additional Information:
1. Unavoidably, about 1% to 2% of mailed-in specimens are not viable.
2. Bloody specimens are undesirable.
3. If the specimen does not grow in culture, you will be notified within 7 days of receipt.
4. Results will be reported and also telephoned or faxed, if requested.
 
Chorionic villi:
 
1. Collect specimen by the transabdominal or transcervical method.
2. Transfer chorionic villi to a Petri dish containing transport medium.
3. Using a stereomicroscope and sterile forceps, assess the quality and quantity of the villi and remove any blood clots and maternal decidua.
 
Specimen Minimum Volume Additonal Information:
Amniotic Fluid: 2 mL; Chorionic Villi: 2 mg; If ordering in conjunction with other testing: If ordered with CHRAF: 12 mL; with CHRCV: 12 mg; with CMAP: 12 mL or 12 mg; with CHRAF/CHRCV and CMAP: 26 mL or 26 mg
 
Specimen Stability Information
Specimen Type Temperature
Varies​ Refrigerated (preferred)​
Ambient ​
Rejection Criteria

​All specimens will be evaluated at Mayo Clinic Laboratories for test suitability. 

Interference

The use of these probes has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a stand-alone test. However, we recommend that complete chromosome analysis (CHRAF / Chromosome Analysis, Amniotic Fluid or CHRCV / Chromosome Analysis, Chorionic Villus Sampling) or chromosomal microarray (CMAP / Chromosomal Microarray, Prenatal, Amniotic Fluid/Chorionic Villus Sampling) be performed in conjunction with this FISH test. In cases where the FISH analysis is normal, a chromosome analysis or chromosomal microarray allows for the potential identification of more complex abnormalities and the less common numeric abnormalities of other chromosomes. In cases where the FISH study is abnormal, chromosome analysis can determine whether the abnormality is due to aneuploidy or a complex structural abnormality, allowing for recurrence risk information for the family.

Interfering factors:

-Inadequate amount of specimen may not permit adequate analysis

-Exposure of the specimen to temperature extremes (freezing or greater than 30 degrees C) may kill cells and interfere with attempts to culture cells

-Improper packaging may result in broken, leaky, and contaminated specimens during transport

-Transport time should not exceed 2 days

-Contamination by maternal cells may interfere with attempts to culture cells and may cause interpretive problems
