HPV RNA ISH 16/18, HPV RNA ISH High Risk Cocktail, HPV RNA ISH Low Risk Cocktail
In Situ Hybridization (ISH)
In situ hybridization on FFPE tissues for qualitative detection of E6/E7 mRNA in up to 28 HPV subtypes with the complete panel: low risk (10 subtypes: 6, 11, 40, 43, 44, 54, 69, 70, 71, 74) plus high risk (18 subtypes: 16, 18, 26, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 53, 56, 58, 59, 66, 68, 73, 82). Testing with the complete panel is recommended, but orders for partial panels are accepted. Orderable components are (1) 16/18 High Risk; (2) High Risk Cocktail with all of the previously-named high risk subtypes; and (3) Low Risk Cocktail with all previously-named low risk subtypes. Reports will identify which component or cocktail is positive, but will not identify specific subtypes as positive. Testing is performed only on a global or consult basis at this time.
Use cold pack for transport, making sure cold pack is not in direct contact with specimen.
Complete panel (16/18, high risk cocktail, and low risk cocktail): 88365x1, 88364x2. Partial panel: 88365x1 for first component/cocktail, 88364x1 for second component/cocktail.
