Ordering Guidance

This test includes only technical performance of the stain (no pathologist interpretation is performed). If diagnostic consultation by a pathologist is required order PATHC / Pathology Consultation.

Shipping Instructions

Attach the green pathology address label and the pink Immunostain Technical Only label included in the kit to the outside of the transport container.

Specimen Required

Digital Image Access

1. Information on accessing digital images of IHC stains and the manual requisition form can be accessed through this website: https://news.mayocliniclabs.com/ihc-stains/

2. Clients ordering stains using a manual requisition form will not have access to digital images.

Clinical Information
Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) causes a wheezing illness that especially affects young children. The virus infects alveolar pneumocytes and induces fusion of multiple cells, creating a "syncytial" multinucleated cell. This RSV probe sequence was designed to identify subgroups RSV-A and RSV-B. It has been verified to not cross react with the following viruses in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue: adenovirus (ADV), BK virus (BKV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), human herpes virus, type 8 (HHV-8), human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6, 11, 16, E6/E7, Helicobacter pylori (H pylori), herpes simplex virus (HSV) types 1 and 2, JC virus (JCV), parvovirus, toxoplasma, and varicella-zoster viruses (VZV).

Interpretation
Provides information to assist in interpretation of the test results

This test includes only technical performance of the stain (no pathologist interpretation is performed). Mayo Clinic cannot provide an interpretation of tech only stains outside the context of a pathology consultation. If an interpretation is needed, refer to PATHC / Pathology Consultation for a full diagnostic evaluation or second opinion of the case. All material associated with the case is required. Additional specific stains may be requested as part of the pathology consultation, and will be performed as necessary at the discretion of the Mayo pathologist.

 

The positive and negative controls are verified as showing appropriate immunoreactivity and documentation is retained at Mayo Clinic Rochester. If a control tissue is not included on the slide, a scanned image of the relevant quality control tissue is available upon request. Contact 855-516-8404.

 

Interpretation of this test should be performed in the context of the patient's clinical history and other diagnostic tests by a qualified pathologist.

Cautions
Discusses conditions that may cause diagnostic confusion, including improper specimen collection and handling, inappropriate test selection, and interfering substances

Age of a cut paraffin section can affect staining quality. Stability thresholds vary widely among published literature. Best practice is for paraffin sections to be cut within 6 weeks.
