Subject: [Histonet] c-kit mutation for Melanoma

I'm interested in learning what labs you are using for c-kit mutation for Melanoma. I'm told this testing is different for c-kit in other organ systems and that labs performing c-kit may not be equipped to work up the melanoma variant

Thank you for any light you can shed on this.
