KIT (c-KIT) Mutation Analysis

Last Modified: 3/3/2020 2:58:57 PM

Specimen Requirements:

FFPE tissue: Paraffin block

Collection Instructions: Alternatively, send 1 H&E slide plus 5-10 unstained slides cut at 5 or more microns. Please use positively-charged slides and 10% NBF fixative. Do not use zinc fixatives.
Reference Range: Refer to Interpretive Results
Methodology: Molecular
Clinical Significance:

The four tested exons encompass the majority of mutations found in gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), melanoma, core-binding factor AML (CBF-AML), mast cell disease (systemic mastocytosis), and germ cell tumors. Mutation identification is useful for planning TKI therapy and predicting clinical course.
