KRAS Mutation Detection
The test detects 7 KRAS gene mutations in codons 12 and 13. The mutations at these two codons are linked to resistance to cancer therapies that target to the KRAS pathway in colorectal and other cancers.
Paraffin-embedded, formalin-fixed tissue block In case the blocks are not available, 5 unstained slides are acceptable. Ship specimens at 20° - 25° C. Tissues not fixed in formalin are unacceptable.
- Frozen specimens
- Specimens in formalin substitute
- Ambient: Indefinitely
No mutation detected
|Mutation Detected||A mutation was detected in KRAS codon 12 and 13.|
|No Mutation Detected||No KRAS mutation was identified in the provided specimen of this patient.|
|QNS||Due to inadequate specimen or less than 50% tumor cells presents in the tissue|
