PALB2 Del/Dup Interp      
Comprehensive Interp      
Additional Information      

PRIMARY
1 Whole Blood EDTA 4 (2) mL   Refrigerated - 8 Day(s)/Room Temperature - 8 Day(s)  
ALTERNATE
  Whole Blood ACD Sol A 4 (2) mL   Refrigerated - 8 Day(s)/Room Temperature - 8 Day(s)  

Sequencing and deletion/duplication analyses of the PALB2 gene will identify individuals at risk for PALB2-related cancers. Fanconi anemia (subtype FA-N) has been linked to homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in the PALB2 gene, and thus this testing will identify carriers of Fanconi anemia (FA-N) when a monoallelic mutation is identified. This testing can also assist with diagnosis of Fanconi anemia in an individual suspected of having subtype FA-N, which is associated with biallelic PALB2 mutations.

Whole Blood: Normal phlebotomy procedure; specimen stability is
crucial. Store and ship room temperature immediately. Do not freeze.
Send report of results for family member with known BRCA mutation.
Setup Schedule
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
