Effective immediately, due to low test utilization and the high cost of maintaining proficiency, the Chromosome Analysis Breakage Study will no longer be offered by the Spectrum Health Cytogenetics Department.
If need arises for this test, please place an order for a Reference Miscellaneous (EPIC# LAB848) and enter “Test 140 DEB Breakage Study to Integrated Genetics” in the comments. The testing will be sent out through Spectrum Health Referrals Department to Integrated Genetics.
Please refer to Integrated Genetics requisition when ordering or contact Spectrum Health Referral Department for appropriate requisitions.
Any questions or concerns regarding these changes may be directed to Dr. Timothy Drumheller using the “contact us” link above.
