GENERAL CRITERIA FOR SAMPLE REJECTION

GENERAL CRITERIA FOR SAMPLE REJECTION

1 - must be respected all the items contained in this manual according to the test requested, such as:
1.1 Type of material sent (whole blood, plasma, brushed, etc..).
1.2 Volume of material submitted.
1.3 anticoagulant used for collection. EDTA or heparin, according to the specifications of the test to be performed.
1.4 Storage of the sample (temperature and time).
1.5 Transport (deadline for delivery and transport temperature).

2 - Other reasons for rejection of samples:
2.1 Hemolyzed.
2.2 broken pipes.
2.3 leaking pipes.
2.4 Samples sent by the System BitAdsor / viveST ® showing evidence of moisture.

3 - Samples accepted with restrictions
3.1 Sampling of whole blood aliquoted will be received, but the restriction will include information on the report issued. Ideally, the sample is sent in the same collection tube (primary tube).
3.2 Sample Plasma aliquoted will be received, but the information will include the restriction in the report. Ideally, the sample is not manipulated and is collected and sent into a tube with separation of plasma.
3.3 Samples shipped in syringes. The receipt will be individually assessed and if accepted, information regarding the restriction indicated in the report. To ensure biosafety criteria, the sample must be transferred to a sterile tube before they are sent. The samples sent to the Department of Cytogenetics which must be transported in syringes, must submit the plunger and the needle immobilized.
3.4 received samples at temperatures above 25 º C.

4 - Samples waiting to register:
4.1 Request for examinations with missing data, such as:
4.1.1 Name of applicant laboratory;
4.1.2 name of the patient;
4.1.3 Full name of test requested;
4.1.4 Date of material collection.
4.1.5 Description of the submitted material (serum, plasma, CSF, etc.).
4.2 Transmission of examination Parenthood without the information requested in the kit without the collection and documentation involved.
4.3 Transmission of examination for genetic testing without the completed form.

Notes:
1 - The examination shall be registered only after submission of data and / or missing documents to the Genome Center.
2 - Paternity tests will be kept on hold for a maximum of 15 days, and after this period will be returned to requesting laboratories.
3 - The deadline for the release of results starting from the registration exam.
4 - It is considered the first day, the day after registration.
5 - It is important that the laboratory meets the request with information about patient medication.

Note Request for Turning Point:
Tests for the meeting of mutations serve to complement the research in a family. The genes that provide for the complete sequencing can be addressed with the tests to Point Mutation. So often, we have an index case that the language of geneticists is called the proband, which is the first person who was investigated with taking complete sequencing of a gene, providing genetic change (mutation or polymorphism) described as causing a disease . This change can be studied in first-degree relatives of this person, through an examination Point Mutation Research. The genes discussed in this review are large and each family under investigation may have a particular genetic alteration. When there is a search request Turning Point, the mutation found in the index case, which represents a first-degree relative, must be specified on the medical report or application.
