Ordering Information

The Idylla™ EGFR Mutation Test, performed on the Biocartis Idylla™ system, is a fully automated, real-time PCR,  in vitro diagnostic test for the qualitative detection of 51 mutations

in exons 18-21. EGFR mutation testing in exons 18-21 is recommended in all patients with advanced NSCLC of a non-squamous subtype.

The mutation test allows detection of EGFR mutations directly from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sections in approximately 2 hours, and is suitable for the detection of the T790M resistance mutation.
