Precision results to inform treatment decisions

Mayo Clinic Laboratories’ full suite of pediatric hematologic testing identifies common and rare pediatric disorders, including serious blood cancers, and provides accurate answers to inform treatment decisions. Test results can also support the placement of pediatric patients in clinical trials. Our clinically meaningful testing was developed by a team of multidisciplinary experts and built around the needs of young patients, providing answers to help set patients on the path toward healing.

Children’s Oncology Group testing

Our Children's Oncology Group works to establish relationships with care providers, clinical research assistants, and clinical staff to provide the best patient care. Our physicians offer test-ordering recommendations and provide trusted opinions on a case-by-case basis. Because of our large COG test volumes, we employ a dedicated COG team with laboratorians, technical specialists, and laboratory directors focused on pediatric patient cases. Offering more than test results, our Children’s Oncology Group testing services include:

  • Review and submission of all COG paperwork for approval in clinical trials.
  • Testing on all specimen types, including bone marrow, blood, formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue, and more.
  • Customized, interpretive reports for even the most complex cases.
