There are two testing laboratories for RAS testing: St James’ University Hospital in Leeds and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. Please send the block to whichever lab is closer to you. If you are unsure please contact the trial office.
The addresses of the two main laboratories are:
Dr Susan Richman, FOxTROT Trial Laboratory, Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine, Section of Pathology and Tumour Biology, Wellcome Trust Brenner Building, St James' University Hospital, Leeds LS9 7TF
Dr Philippe Taniere, Consultant Pathologist, Department of Cellular Histopathology, Level -1, Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Mindelsohn Way, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2WB
Please do not send the biopsy block to the FOxTROT Trial Office at the University of Birmingham. To do so would cause unnecessary delays as the block will need to be sent on to one of the two testing laboratories.
