Specimen requirements for ALK FISH are generally similar to those for EGFR mutation testing: formalin fixation is acceptable, specimens should have enough cancer cells to analyze clearly, and DNA-damaging fixatives or acidic decalcifying agents should be avoided, as should specimens with abundant necrosis.
Apart from having a decalcifying effect, alkali citrates also have some other beneficial properties like prevention of the formation of calcium crystals (8-12), regulation of calcium metabolism and some anti-inflammatory properties (13-15) that leads us to consider alkali citrates as possible front line fighters in the fight of the removal and/or prevention of calcification on the native human heart valves.
