Clinical trials samples
We are the regional centre for haemato-oncology molecular
The clinical trial protocol will advise on the appropriateness
of referral to designated centres and when it is appropriate to use
regional centres. When the MDC laboratory participates in a
clinical trial as the designated UK centre for testing, this will
be indicated in the trial protocol.
It is also appropriate to refer patients for molecular testing
that are not participants in a clinical trial. Therefore these can
be referred directly to the MDC laboratory and any advice required
can be sought by contacting the laboratory.
