Microsatellite instability (MSI) analysis

Microsatellite instability (MSI) testing analyzes colon, endometrial, and other tumor tissue samples. It can be used to screen tumors for mismatch repair deficiency (MMRd), and to find individuals who may be at-risk for Lynch syndrome. The results of MSI testing can guide the next steps for your patient with regards to treatment recommendations, as well as further testing for Lynch syndrome.
