Use to evaluate for a molecular etiology of holoprosencephaly (HPE) in an affected fetus.
Massively Parallel Sequencing
2-4 weeks; if culture is required, an additional 1 to 2 weeks is required for processing time.
New York DOH Approval Status
Fetal Specimen: Four (4) T-25 flasks at 80% confluent of cultured amniocytes or cultured chorionic villus sampling (CVS).
AND Maternal Whole Blood Specimen: Lavender (EDTA), pink (K2EDTA), or yellow (ACD Solution A or B).
Cultured Amniocytes or Cultured CVS: Fill flasks with culture media. Transport four (4) T-25 flasks at 80 percent confluent of cultured amniocytes or cultured CVS filled with Culture Media. Backup cultures must be retained at the client's institution until testing is complete. If the client is unable to culture amniocytes, this can be arranged by contacting ARUP Client Services at (800)522-2787 ext. 2141 prior to test submission.
Maternal Whole Blood Specimen: Transport 3 mL whole blood. (Min: 3 mL)
Cultured Amniocytes or Cultured CVS: CRITICAL ROOM TEMPERATURE. Must be received within 48 hours of shipment due to viability of cells.
Maternal Specimen: Room Temperature
Cultured Amniocytes or Cultured CVS: Room temperature: 48 hours; Refrigerated: Unacceptable; Frozen: Unacceptable
Maternal Whole Blood Specimen: Room temperature: 7 days, Refrigerated: 1 month, Frozen: Unacceptable

This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. It has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. This test was performed in a CLIA certified laboratory and is intended for clinical purposes.
Counseling and informed consent are recommended for genetic testing. Consent forms are available online.
Laboratory Developed Test (LDT)
Determine the etiology of holoprosencephaly in an affected pregnancy or determine if parents of an affected pregnancy are carriers. Chromosome analysis should be performed in an affected pregnancy before ordering this test.
Genes tested: CDON; FGFR1*; GLI2; PTCH1; SHH; SIX3; TGIF1; ZIC2*
* One or more exons are not covered by sequencing and/or deletion/duplication analysis for the indicated gene; see Additional Technical Information.
Reported times are based on receiving the four (4) T-25 flasks at 80 percent confluent. Cell culture time is independent of testing turnaround time. Maternal specimen is recommended for proper test interpretation. Order Maternal Cell Contamination.
