Use to detect Epstein-Barr virus in paraffin. Includes interpretation.
In situ hybridization (ISH)
Formalin fix (10% neutral buffered formalin) and paraffin-embed tissue. Transport tissue block or 5 unstained 5 micron slides. (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).
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.
