SR. NO TEST TEST COMPONENTS Method Specimen/Transport TAT Clinical Applications
1 Frozen section - On Cryostate Prior notification of frozen section required for 1) Time of frozen section 2) Type of specimen will be sent to us for frozen 3) What surgeon wants from frozen section 4) Relevant clinical details 5) Contact no of surgeon for communication during and after frozen Fresh specimen in a container without formalin 35 mins after it reaches our laboratory Diagnosis and decision making for additional surgery requirement
2 Immunohistochemistry study A) Mesothelioma V/S Metastatic adenocarcinoma · Calretinin · CK5/6 · CEA · Ber2EP4 · CD15 · PAN CK · CK7 · CK20 B) GIT · CK7 · CK20 · Pan CK · CK19 · CDX2 · Hepar · AFP · Glypican 3 · Her2Neu · CD117 · DOG1 · H Caldesmon · CEA · CD34 C) MMR IHC Leica BondMax fully automated IHC machine Formalin fixed tissue 3-4 days For definitive diagnosis suspected on routine histopathology stain.
3 Liquid based cytology and cell block preparation (All body fluid) By special technique background material is reduced and hence individual cells can be seen clearly to detect early cancer Specimen to be collected in plain tube and transported as early as possible. In case of delay keep in refrigerator and transport with coolent. 24 Hrs Helps early detection of cancer by better visualization of individual cells
4 Special stains PAS stain-for fungal elements ZN stain for acid fast bacilli Manual Formalin fixed tissue 48 to 72 hrs, may be longer if longer bone decalcification required For detection of infective pathology
5 Same day biopsy reporting Small biopsy Microwave based test Formalin fixed tissue to be received before 12.00 noon and report will be done by same day before 7 o’clock
6 FNAC a) Guided only Smears reporting FNAC procedure a) Received from radiologist or surgeons b) OPD procedure at our centre a) With proper fixatives b) Smears prepared from superficially palpable lesions
