Abstract: Sequencing EGFR is important in all NSCLC diagnostic samples, in a quick and effective manner, in order to allow a better therapeutic strategy. Aim:Presentation of the technology developed in our service in 2010 aimed at researching EGFR mutations in diagnostic samples of NSCLC obtained by:CT guided transthoracic needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB); bronchoalveolar lavage(BAL); endobronchial ultrasound guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) and the classic methodology used in brushing(EB) and bronchial biopsy(BB); surgical samples; pleural biopsy and fluid. Comparison between the average times for result acquisition in the various samples.
