PancraGEN Test Requisition (NY/RI)
- Include Patient Billing Demographic sheet and EUS report.
- Ship specimen using provided kit with frozen shipping blocks.
- Specimens will reside in storage at Interpace Diagnostics for up to 45 days.
- If ordering molecular testing, please also include cytology, CEA, glucose, and amylase reports (if NOT tested by Interpace Diagnostics)
- Fax Requisition form and clinical reports to Interpace Diagnostics at 888-674-6894
Expect a PancraGEN® report delivered within 10 to 14 business days from the date of the requisition form (and sample, if applicable) submission.
Easy to Use
- With Point2™ fluid chemistry testing, streamline your diagnostic practice with highly specialized CEA†, glucose, and amylase assays for pancreatic cyst fluid. Each assay only requires 0.2mL*9 of fluid and can be reflexed to PancraGEN molecular testing, as needed
Comprehensive services including cytopathology, Point2™ fluid chemistry assays (CEA†, glucose, and amylase), storage, and molecular testing with a single sample
Results Reports that are easy to read, conveniently delivered through our online portal
Customer service and in-servicing for your office are available
Patient financial assistance available through our Compass program
*0.2mL is the lower limit of cyst fluid needed for testing. Providing additional cyst fluid volume, as possible, is encouraged. Specimens submitted that do not meet volume requirements will be tested using a dilution protocol or the ordering physician may be contacted for testing priority.
†Point2™CEA was previously AccuCEA™.
Point2™ Fluid Chemistry Testing
Our Point2™ assays for CEA†, glucose, and amylase are highly accurate and specifically developed for pancreatic cyst fluid.9
All Point2™ tests are
- Validated for use specifically with pancreatic cyst fluid9
- Able to provide an accurate result—even with viscous or bloody samples9
- Able to be reflexed to PancraGEN® for molecular testing
Results are typically reported within 1-3 business days.
Fluid chemistry results should be reviewed in relation to the patient’s medical history and current conditions.

Limitations and Disclaimers1
Although PancraGEN is highly specific for malignancy, some malignant cysts may not be detected. There may also be individuals who are falsely identified as having a malignant cyst. Diagnosis and appropriate patient management are the responsibility of the referring physician or healthcare provider.
