Booking the Test

To undergo Prosigna™ testing, a prescription is required from an oncologist. Because the test cannot be performed as part of the National Health Service, one only needs a prescription from a physician on official letterhead ("red" prescriptions not necessary).

  • Histological Sample. In the event that the surgical removal of the tumor occurred at the Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital, the histological sample is already deposited in our laboratory. Otherwise, the patient will have to get a hold of the histological specimen prior to the day of the test by submitting to their respective hospital the following request:
    • Block of paraffin-embedded tissue of infiltrated carcinoma (the material received will be returned after the execution of the examination);
    • Alternatively, organize the inclusion of at least 6 tumor histological sections from 10 microns thick, each on a standard covered glass slide (non-polarized and without sealant) used for collecting sterile distilled water in disposable containers (e.g. petri dish). Prepare sections from the paraffin embedded tissue of infiltrating carcinoma and primitive, in which the neoplasm is prevalent, compared to healthy tissue. Provide a section of the corresponding hematoxylin and eosin.
  • A certified copy of the histological report on the material sent
  • A prescription for Prosigna™ testing (prescription should be on official letterhead, signed by the physician and include corresponding telephone numbers)

 

Reporting Time

Results are available within 15 working days from the fixed day of the test.

Prosigna™ is a prognostic test with European certification and offers no reimbursement by the National Health Service. The cost of the test for the patient is 3.000 Euros.
