4. Individual B-ALL FISH probes (per client request)
The specific B-ALL FISH panel or FISH probes requested must be noted on the request form or in the reason for referral. If no specific panel or FISH probe request is indicated, the "Standard (diagnostic) B-ALL FISH panel" will be performed.
Panel includes Blood Gas (pH, partial pressure of carbon dioxide pCO2, partial pressure of oxygen pO2, base excess BE)
Quantitative direct agglutination procedure for the detection of antibody to B. abortus, B. melitensis, and B. suis.
Antibodies to Brucella canis, a rare cause of brucellosis, are not detected by this method.
