Screen for potential SDH germline mutations in patients with certain tumor types.
Formalin fix (10 percent neutral buffered formalin) and paraffin embed specimen (cells must be prepared into a cellblock). Protect paraffin block and/or slides from excessive heat. Transport tissue block or 6 unstained (3- to 5- micron thick sections), positively charged slides in a tissue transport kit (ARUP Supply #47808) available online through eSupply using ARUP Connect™ or contact ARUP Client Services at (800)522-2787. (Min. 2 slides) If sending precut slides, do not oven bake.
Room temperature or refrigerated. Ship in cooled container during summer months.
Specimens submitted with non-representative tissue type. Depleted specimens.
IMMUNOHISTOCHEMISTRY ORDERING AND SUBMISSION DETAILS: Submit electronic request. For additional technical details, please contact ARUP Anatomic Pathology at (801)581-2507.
If multiple specimens (blocks or slides) are sent to ARUP, they must be accompanied by one of the following: an order comment indicating that the ARUP pathologist should choose the specimen most appropriate for testing (e.g., "Choose best block"), or individual orders for each sample submitted. A Pathologist Block Selection Fee (ARUP test code 3002076) will be added to orders that utilize the first option. If multiple specimens are sent to ARUP without a request for pathologist block/slide selection or individual orders, they will be held until clarification is provided.
Ambient: Indefinite; Refrigerated: Indefinitely; Frozen: Unacceptable
