Through our Tech-Only Service, NeoGenomics offers multiple opportunities for client pathologists to participate in the diagnostic process and provide professional component services.
In Anatomic Pathology, testing procedures commonly have two components: the professional component or “PC”, which is performed by the ordering physician, and the technical component or “TC”. The technical component involves test-specific sample preparation and processing to produce result data, and is always performed by NeoGenomics.
The steps to fulfill the professional component vary depending on the test ordered.
