Subject: [Histonet] FISH for HER2 testing
I have a pathologist who is looking for good turn around time on FISH
testing. Their current turn around time is 3 weeks and the clinicians
clamoring for something better. If anyone knows of a reference lab that
do good FISH HER2 testing in a timely fashion, please let me know.
On a side note, has anyone experienced any problems with the Dako FDA
approved HercepTest kit when using it on breast core bx's? My Docs are
confident using this kit (especially on our breast cores). Has anyone
side by side comparisons between this kit and FISH HER2 testing?
If someone can suggest a good FISH HER2 reference lab, the second set of
questions are moot.
Thank-you In Advance,
