Facilitates diagnosis of Burkitt lymphoma (BL) and B-cell lymphoma with features intermediate between BL and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL).
Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH)
Formalin fix (10 percent neutral buffered formalin) and paraffin-embed specimen. Protect paraffin block and/or slides from excessive heat. Transport tissue block or 5 unstained (3-micron thick sections) positively charge 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 (kit is recommended but not necessary). (Min: 2 slides) If sending precut slides, do not oven bake.
