We hardly ever to Her2 on the large breast specimens.  Only when we do
not have the results from the core biopsy at our facility or the
facility at which the core biopsy was done did not perform the testing.
Most of our specimens for Her2 are the small core biopsies that usually
go between that 6-48 hour time period anyway.  Our Genzyme rep was
actually here yesterday and she said that some of the labs are choosing
to skip the IHC and go straight for the FISH.  But from what I
understand, the time limit also applies to Her2 by FISH as well.  Is
this correct?
