Identifying non-small cell lung cancers that may benefit from treatment with epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase or anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitors.
When this test is ordered, EGFR and LCAF testing will always be ordered. The EGFR Gene, Mutation Analysis, 29 Mutation Panel, Tumor, will always be performed. All specimens without an EGFR mutation will be automatically reflexed to LCAF/ALK (2p23), Lung Caner, FISH Tissue at an additional charge. Specimens with an identified EGFR mutation will result in cancellation of the LCAF test.
See - EGFR with ALK reflex.
Provide a pathology report with each specimen. The laboratory will not reject specimens that arrive without this information but will hold the specimen until a pathology report is received.
