FISH testing with the FGFR1 probe allows detection of translocations involving FGFR1 and another chromosome region (usually a tyrosine kinase coding gene). Fusion of FGFR1 with a tyrosine kinase coding gene leads to kinase activation.

1-3 mL bone marrow in transport medium or 3-5 mL whole blood in a
sodium heparin tube (green top, dark/royal blue top, tan top).
Formalin fixed paraffin embedded tumor biopsy or 5 mm x 5 mm
fresh tumor biopsy in transport medium.

Clinical history/reason for referral is required with test order.
Prior therapy and transplant history should be provided with test
order.

SPECIMEN VIABILITY DECREASES DURING TRANSIT. SEND SPECIMEN TO
TESTING LAB FOR VIABILITY DETERMINATION. DO NOT REJECT.
