S51769: FISH, Vysis® UroVysion™, Bladder Cancer [10107N] Print View
Bladder Cancer FISH     

PRIMARY
1 Urine 50 (50) mL   Refrigerated - 72 Hour(s)/Room Temperature - 72 Hour(s)  
ALTERNATE

Useful for monitoring bladder cancer and in the intial diagnosis of bladder cancer in patients with hematuria. A urine preservative transport kit, with handling instructions, is available upon request. Perform urine collection (50 mL) at the physician's office or Patient Service Center (PSC) in a sterile 100mL urine specimen container. Mix voided urine with CytoLyt OR ethanol 50% in a 1:1 solution. Alternatively, mix urine with preservative Carbowax (2% polyethylene glycol in 50% ethanol) 2:1 (v:v). It is recommended that specimens be processed within 72 hours of collection. Samples received without preservative will be assayed; any study under these conditions yielding insufficient cells or an abnormal result should have a follow-up study with urine in a preservative. Cold packs are recommended during transportation. If urine is not shipped immediately after collection, refrigerate immediately (DO NOT FREEZE) and ship via overnight courier within 24 hours. Under no circumstances should urine specimens be stored or shipped at temperatures at or above 37 degrees C. Specimen viability decreases during transit. Send specimen to testing lab for viability determination. Do not reject.
