Best Practices in NSCLC Small Specimen Management for Laboratory Professionals


Dara Aisner, MD, PhD


Sinchita Roy-Chowdhuri, MD, PhD

This webinar is a recorded presentation of a live broadcast and includes the presentation, handout, and the audience QA.


This session will focus on the approaches to management of small tissue samples in the pathology laboratory. These will include diagnostic approaches minimizing use of immunohistochemistry, best practices for maximizing tissue preservation for ancillary studies, and technical considerations for optimal sample use. Additional practices which can be deployed for further tissue maximization will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify key obstacles to ensuring adequate tissue availability for molecular analysis in new diagnosis samples of NSCLC.
  • Elaborate on technical approaches to the specimen handling and laboratory processes which can maximize tissue preservation for molecular testing while maintaining diagnostic integrity.
