Antibody to the kappa light chain of immunoglobulin is reportedly useful in the identification of leukemias, plasmacytomas and certain non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Demonstration of monotypism in lymphoid infiltrates is a surrogate for clonality, and…
Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
Each test contains a set of oligonucleotide probes. The intended target is the kappa light chain immunoglobulin messenger RNA (mRNA) in the cytoplasm of immunoblastic cells, plasma cells and plasmacytoid cells. Assessing the light chain…
In Situ Hybridization (ISH)
Ki67 is a nuclear protein that is expressed in proliferating cells. Ki67 is preferentially expressed during late G1, S, M, and G2 phases of the cell cycle, while cells in the G0 (quiescent) phase are negative for this protein. Increased…
Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
Bi-directional sequencing of KIT exons 8, 9, 11, 13 and 17 for detection of activating mutations including the common mutation D816V. For solid tumors, tumor enrichment is performed before extraction. In hematological disease, testing may be…
Molecular
Bi-directional sequencing of exon 4 of the KRAS gene corresponding to amino acids  R97 through Q150.  Codon 117 and 146 mutations are detected. For solid tumors, tumor enrichment is performed before extraction.  This test may be ordered separately…
Molecular
Bi-directional sequencing of exons 2 and 3 of the KRAS gene. High-sensitivity sequencing is used for enhanced detection of mutations in codons 12, 13, 59, and 61.  For solid tumors, tumor enrichment is performed before extraction. Testing is…
