Important Information:
This assay determines the percentage of donor and/or recipient cells present in the peripheral blood or bone marrow, post allogeneic bone marrow or solid organ transplant. Microsatellite (short tandem repeats or STR) alleles are amplified using PCR and the sequencer is used to visualize the bands and quantitate the size of the peaks. Microsatellite genotyping must be done on donor and recipient pre-transplant samples. Test results are found under "Reports" --> "Pathology" --> "Surgical Pathology."
