September 23, 2020- Temporary Test Update
Temporary Test Update
Effective immediately, Ploidy FISH for Molar Pregnancy (available as global only) will be performed with the CEN11 probe alone, rather than CEN1 and CEN11 probes,
due to a temporary CEN1 probe manufacturing shortage. A review of internal data
has determined that the use of the CEN11 probe alone, along with an increase in
cutoff values for the abnormalities detected, may allow for an accurate ploidy
determination in the majority of cases submitted. Please also be aware that
during this time, CPT coding will reflect the original code. Our billing
department will be adjusting invoices accordingly.
The CEN1 shortage is
expected to resolve by the beginning of October, and we will keep you updated
on the status. Please contact your local Territory Business Manager or our
Client Services team with any questions.
