I have started this for basic information on some of the leading pathology people or labs, others can add to this list. My information today is limited, I am waiting to hear from Bostwick Labs via email I have some of their old pricing 2003-4. These phone numbers are old now, should be valid still.

Lab Corp/Dianon Labs- does do ploidy testing and can do PCa test through Conneticut branch
Epstein does not do ploidy analysis testings (fyi)

Will update if I hear from Bostwick Labs....others can add to this stuff...for others benefit.
You can have your pathology reviewed literally forever, the sample/slides are usually stored and do not go bad, so review can be done anytime. Good for second opinion or further investigations and other optional testings they may offer, do inquiry as to what they can test, chromagrin or dye testings etc. Always get an actual copy of your pathology report, not a summary type thing.
You can call ask them about variants, are they identifiable with DNA ploidy is a good question or is it further testings.
