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 - 7 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.
Fixed-cell pellet from a cytogenetic analysis, slides with metaphases and/or interphase nuclei, or bone marrow touch prep slides. Blood, bone marrow, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), FNA, paraffin block are also acceptable with additional charge.
Fixed-cell pellet, three slides, 10 mL blood (adult), 5 mL blood (pediatric), or 3 mL bone marrow
Fixed-cell pellet from a cytogenetic analysis, two slides, 5 mL blood (adult), 1 mL blood (pediatric), or 1 mL bone marrow
Green-top (sodium heparin) tube; pediatric Vacutainer® is optimal or lavender-top (EDTA) tube
Transport to the testing lab at room temperature; use a cool pack or LabCorp transport kit. Do not allow sample to freeze. Sample must arrive in the laboratory within 72 hours of collection.
Maintain specimen at room temperature.
Broken or dirty slides; excessive cellular debris or stained slides; decalcified bone cores; frozen specimen
Confirmation/identification of cancer-related alterations (alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma)
Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)
A FKHR gene rearrangement is found in alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (A-RMS). A-RMS is characterized by two pathognomonic translocations which generate gene fusions: t(2;13)(q35;q14) [PAX3-FKHR] and t(1;13)(p36;q14) [PAX7-FKHR], found in 80% and 15% of cases, respectively.
