To order OncoDefender-CRC:
What are the OncoDefender-CRC tissue sample requirements?
We accept either a formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue block or 15 unstained slides. If sending a block, please select one with the greatest amount of invasive cancer and related stroma. Everist Genomics will return any unused tissue from this block to the Pathologist.
If sending tissue slides, please prepare 15 slides containing unstained FFPE tissue that, when taken together, provide a total of at least 375 sq mm of colorectal tumor foci (i.e., ≥25 sq mm tumor/slide) and that are 5 microns thick.
Affix a bar code label from the collection/mailing kit to each block or slide sample. These labels must be included and must match the Test Requisition Form label.
What is reported from the OncoDefender-CRC test and how do I get the results?
The OncoDefender-CRC results report includes an indication of risk for cancer recurrence within 3 years of surgery (resection) relative to results obtained in the clinical validation study.
Reports are available by fax, overnight mail, or email to the ordering physician and any other physicians or health care providers identified on the Test Requisition Form.
The Test Requisition Form provides options for you to select your preferred reporting method.
