Our global life sciences company brings diagnostic testing & drug development together.
There will be an additional charge for processing paraffin block samples or for samples that require culture.
4 - 5 days
Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.
Formalin-fixed paraffin block or fresh tissue (acceptable at additional charge)
Five slides (4- to 5-micron thick sections)
Three slides (4- to 5-micron thick sections)
Green-top (sodium heparin) tube; pediatric Vacutainer® is optimal
Transport to the testing lab at room temperature; if fresh tumor specimen, sample must arrive in the laboratory within 72 hours of collection.
Maintain specimen at room temperature.
Improper embedded prep; poor fixation <6 hours and >72 hours; decalcified tissue; broken or dirty slides; absence of tumor or quantity not sufficient for analysis.
Confirmation/identification of cancer-related alterations (associated with oligoglioma)
Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue (4-micron to 5-micron sections); H&E for pathology review.
