Use to detect low-risk HPV subtypes. Preferred test to determine potential cancer risk is Human Papillomavirus (HPV) High Risk by in situ Hybridization, Paraffin (3002008).
In situ Hybridization (ISH)
New York DOH Approval Status
Formalin fix (10 percent neutral buffered formalin) and paraffin embed tissue. Transport tissue block or 5 unstained positively charged, 5-micron slides in a tissue transport kit (recommended but not required) (ARUP supply #47808) available online through eSupply using ARUP Connect™ or contact ARUP Client Services at (800) 522-2787. (Min: 4 slides) Protect paraffin block and/or slides from excessive heat.
Room temperature. Also acceptable: Refrigerated. Ship in cooled container during summer months.
Specimens fixed or processed in alternative fixatives (alcohol, Prefer) or heavy metal fixatives (B-4 or B-5). Frozen specimens. Decalcified specimens.
Include surgical pathology report.
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
