Reflex Tests

Test ID Reporting Name Available Separately Always Performed
CULFB Fibroblast Culture for Genetic Test Yes No
CULAF Amniotic Fluid Culture/Genetic Test Yes No
MATCC Maternal Cell Contamination, B Yes No

Testing Algorithm

For prenatal specimens only: If amniotic fluid (nonconfluent cultured cells) is received, amniotic fluid culture/genetic test will be added and charged separately. If chorionic villus specimen (nonconfluent cultured cells) is received, fibroblast culture for genetic test will be added and charged separately. For any prenatal specimen that is received, maternal cell contamination studies will be added.

Clinical Information

Cystic fibrosis (CF), in the classic form, is a severe autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a varied degree of chronic obstructive lung disease and pancreatic enzyme insufficiency. The incidence of CF varies markedly among different populations, as does the variant detection rate for the variant screening assay. To date, over 1500 variants have been described within the CF gene, named cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). The most common variant, deltaF508, accounts for approximately 67% of the variants worldwide and approximately 70% to 75% in a North American White population. Most of the remaining variants are rather rare, although some show a relatively higher prevalence in certain ethnic groups or in some atypical presentations of CF such as congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD). Variants detected by this assay include the 23 variants recommended by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics as well as 83 other variants.


Of note, CFTR potentiator therapies may improve clinical outcomes for patients with a clinical diagnosis of CF and at least one copy of the G178R, G551S, G551D, S549N, S549R, G1244E, S1251N, S1255P, or G1349D variant. The G178R, S549N, S549R, S551D, and S1251N variants are included in this test.


These 106 variants account for approximately 91% of CF chromosomes in a Northern European White population. Detection rates for several ethnic and racial groups are listed in the table below. Note that interpretation of test results and risk calculations are also dependent on clinical information and family history.

*Rates are for classical CF. Rates are lower for atypical forms of CF and for CBAVD.
