ROS1 RNA Fusion Detection now Available

Testing for ROS1 RNA fusion detection is now available in the UIHC Molecular Pathology Laboratory for non-small cell lung cancers. RNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin- embedded tissues is used to detect fusion transcripts that arise from the rearranged genes. Testing can be performed concurrently with EGFR mutation testing.

TEST:  ROS1 Fusion

EPIC Order Code:  LAB506

Method: Anchored multiplexed PCR for targeted next-generation sequencing. Testing is batched.  Turnaround time is 7-10 days.

Specimen type: Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue.

Questions concerning testing can be directed to Deqin Ma, MD, PhD (4-5700), Anthony Snow, MD (3-8986) or Aaron Bossler, MD, PhD (ext. 4-9566).
