How to Order a Test

Ordering an Oncotype DX® test and receiving the results is a straightforward process. Simply follow these 4 steps.

1Obtain specimen kit

Exact Sciences provides a specimen transportation kit box for each patient’s tissue sample. To request specimen transportation kit boxes, contact the Customer Service team at +866-ONCOTYPE (+866-662-6897)

Kit orders are usually processed within a day and received within 48 hours.

3Submit sample

Exact Sciences can work directly with the pathology team (or the treating physician) to obtain a sample.

  • Choose the block with both the greatest amount (cross-sectional area) of highest-grade invasive breast carcinoma and when possible, the least amount of noninvasive mammary epithelium (in situ carcinoma, hyperplastic epithelium, normal epithelium)
  • If needle core biopsy is the optimal sample, submit it instead
  • Label all specimens with S barcode labels from the Oncotype DX specimen collection and transportation kit box for that patient
