Test ID EGFRW EGFR Targeted Mutation Analysis with ALK Reflex, Tumor


Specimen Required


Pathology report must accompany specimen in order for testing to be performed.

 

Preferred:

Specimen Type: Tissue

Container/Tube: Tissue block

Collection Instructions: Submit a formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue block.

 

Acceptable:

Specimen Type: Tissue

Container/Tube: Slides

Specimen Volume: 12 unstained, positively charged, unbaked slides or 2 hematoxylin and eosin-stained slides (will not be returned) and 10 unstained, positively charged, unbaked slides

Collection Instructions: Submit 12 unstained, positively charged, unbaked slides cut at 5-microns or 2 hematoxylin and eosin-stained slides and 10 unstained, positively charged, unbaked slides with 5-micron thick sections of the tumor tissue.


Forms

If not ordering electronically, complete, print, and send 1 of the following forms with the specimen:

Molecular Genetics: Inherited Cancer Syndromes Patient Information (T519)

Oncology Test Request (T729)

Useful For

Identifying non-small cell lung cancers that may benefit from treatment with epidermal growth factor receptor -targeted therapies or anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitors

Additional Tests

Test ID Reporting Name Available Separately Always Performed
SLIRV Slide Review in MG No, (Bill Only) Yes

Reflex Tests

Test ID Reporting Name Available Separately Always Performed
LCAF ALK (2p23), Lung Cancer, FISH, Ts Yes No

Testing Algorithm

When this test is ordered, the EGFR Gene, Mutation Analysis, 51 Mutation Panel, Tumor will always be performed. All specimens without an EGFR mutation will be automatically reflexed to testing for the ALK (2p23) rearrangement. Specimens with an identified EGFR mutation will result in cancellation of the LCAF test.

 

When this test is ordered, slide review will always be performed at an additional charge.
