EGFR Mutation Detection by PCR and Fragment Analysis

Mnemonic:     
Name:    EGFR Mutation Detection by PCR and Fragment Analysis
Specimen:     This test is performed on a paraffin embbeded tissue when requested by one of the pathologists. It is not an orderable assay. All processing of the orders is performed by the pathology department.

Usually if there is an order for GFR or eGFR, it is for "Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate". Clarify the order. The orderable would be a serum/plasma creatinine. The eGFR is a calculation based on patient's creatinine level, sex, race and sex.
