Preferred test for FFPE tissue at time of diagnosis for detecting prognostically important genomic abnormalities in leukemias/lymphomas and solid tumors involving
•Loss/gain of DNA
•Loss of heterozygosity (LOH)
Monitor disease progression and response to therapy.
- Patient Preparation
- Tumor tissue
- Specimen Preparation
