Comments : Background: Screening for mutations in oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes is increasingly important in delivering personalized cancer care. The GeneTrails GIST Panel delivers information on a variety of treatment-informative mutations in 23 genes commonly involved in GI stromal tumors 1-9, covering all of the hotspot mutations sites in the genes listed below. The panel as a sensitivity of <=10% mutant allele. Genes included in panel: AKT1, BRAF, KRAS, PDGFRA, SDHA, SDHC, AKT2, CDKN2A, MAP2K1, PIK3CA, SDHAF1, SDHD, AKT3, HRAS, NF1, PTEN, SDHAF2, TP53, ATM, KIT, NRAS. PTPN11, SDHB Methodology: The GIST Panel is performed on DNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tumor tissue using next-generation, semiconductor-based sequencing (Ion Torrent platform). Input DNA is amplified using the AmpliSeq technology (Ion Torrent), after which the amplicons are modified with adaptors, re-amplified, and subjected to emulsion PCR. The final products are sequenced on a semiconductor-based chip.
Specimen Transport Requirements : Paraffin block or 10 unstained sections (4-5 micron) Due to DNA damage, decalcified specimens are not recommended. Package and ship samples at room temperature. Ship via overnight express. Contact Client Services at (855) 535-1522 for shipping kits and instructions.
