  2. Submit a specimen for testing. The desired specimen for this assay is nine unstained glass slides and one H&E stained glass slide. Please note that we require a tumor specimen submission to contain at least 20% tumor cells to account for tumor heterogeneity.
  3. The sample is sequenced using multiplex PCR and next-generation sequencing technologies.
  4. Our molecular pathologists and geneticists complete an expert review and clinical utility interpretation of any variants that are identified.
  5. A comprehensive results report is provided by fax 10 to 21 days after the accessioning of the sample. If you have any questions about the report, our board certified pathologists and geneticists are available to help.
