Molecular Oncology Tests

The presence or absence of a specific gene mutation has been identified as a predictor of drug response. Testing for gene mutations prior to treatment ensures that the patient receives a drug that has the potential to work for them. 

The following molecular oncology panels using the Agena MassArray System are now available:

Cost for panels 1-3: $661.25 including GST

1. Melanoma Panel (BRAF, KIT, KRAS and NRAS

2. Colorectal Cancer Panel (KRAS, NRAS and BRAF)

3. Lung (NSCLC) Panel (BRAF, EGFR, KRAS)

Cost for panels 4-9 is available on request

4. GIST Panel*

5. Gynae Panel*

6. MLH1 methylation*

7. IDH1/2*

8. JAK2*

9. JAK2, MPL, MYD88 and CALR*

This testing is generally performed on paraffin-embedded tissue. Testing may be available on other tissue types in specific circumstances. Please discuss your requirements directly with the laboratory.
