Panel includes testing for the following abnormalities using the probes listed:
When an additional IGH signal is identified in the absence of a CCND1/IGH fusion, reflex testing using the IGHIBCL3 probe set will be performed to identify a potential IGH/BCL3 fusion [t(14;19)(q32;q13)]

Cytogenetics Hematologic FISH Panel Patient Information Sheet required.Cytogenetics Hematologic FISH Panel Patient Information
1. Provide a reason for testing with each specimen. The laboratory will not reject testing if this information is not provided, but appropriate testing and interpretation may be compromised or delayed.
2. A pathology and/or flow cytometry report may be requested by the Genomics Laboratory to optimize testing and aid in interpretation of results.
A neoplastic clone is detected when the percent of cells with an abnormality exceeds the normal reference range for any given probe set.
The absence of an abnormal clone does not rule out the presence of a neoplastic disorder.
