|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.
