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 or loss of heterozygosity (LOH). Monitor disease progression and response to therapy.
Molecular Inversion Probe Array
Formalin fix (10 percent neutral buffered formalin) and paraffin embed tissue. Protect from excessive heat. Transport 10 slides, each with 5-micron unstained sections or four 20-micron scrolls or tissue block. Tissue block will be returned after testing. Transport tissue in a tissue transport kit (ARUP supply #47808) available online through eSupply using ARUP Connect™ or contact ARUP Client Services at (800) 522-2787.
Room temperature. Also acceptable: Refrigerated. Ship in cooled container during summer months.
Specimens fixed or processed in alternative fixatives or heavy metal fixatives (B-4 or B-5).
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: Indefinitely; Refrigerated: Indefinitely; Frozen: Unacceptable
