Specimen Type: Blood, Formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue

Availability: Mon–Fri 08:00–17:00; Pathologist on call at all times for consultation.

Special Instructions: Specify pertinent oncologic history.

Analytic Time: 10 days.

Causes for Rejection: Unlabeled specimen. Insufficient demographic or clinical information for processing. Insufficient DNA extracted from the sample.

Interpretation: Interpreted by molecular pathologist

Limitations: This assay is intended to only identify clonal populations that can be detected using the primers provided by InVivoScribe Technologies (Immunoglobulin heavy chain (IGH) and Immunoglobulin kappa light chain (IGK); or T-Cell Receptor beta chain (TCRB) and T-Cell Receptor gamma chain (TCRG)).
