STEP 3 of 5

Prepare tumour blocks or unstained slides

Prepare the specimen for submission. Detailed pathology instructions are provided with the specimen box. While the Exact Sciences laboratory can accept tumour blocks and unstained slides, blocks are preferred due to the frequent requirement of manual microdissection of the specimen consistent with clinical trial experience.

STEP 4 of 5

Ship the specimen in the specimen kit box to our centralised laboratory in Redwood City, California, using the pre-printed FedEx Air Waybill and Commercial Invoice. Exact Sciences covers the shipping charges using FedEx. Use FedEx online to arrange sample pick up, if you do not have a FedEx account please contact customer support for login details.
