- NSCLC ALK FISH
- Oncology FISH
Confirmation/identification of non−small-cell lung cancer. This is an FDA-approved test for the identification of NSCLC patients who may be eligible for treatment.
Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue (4-micron to 5-micron sections); H&E for pathology review
Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue
Five slides (4‐ to 5‐micron thick sections)
Two slides (4‐ to 5‐micron thick sections)
Maintain specimen at room temperature.
Causes for Rejection
Improper embedded prep; poor fixation <6 hours and >72 hours; decalcified bones or bone core; broken or dirty slides; absence of tumor or quantity not sufficient for analysis
Pertinent clinical diagnosis, including the pathology report documenting pulmonary origin, should be included with the specimen. Additional charges will be applied for the embedding process if formalin-fixed tissue is submitted.
