Solid Tumors
The Solid Tumors Subdivision is comprised of AMP members who indicate that they have a professional interest in solid tumors. The Solid Tumors Subdivision Leadership has membership on the Program, Nominating, and Training & Education Committees to ensure the continuing education and professional development of those who use molecular diagnostics in the diagnosis and management of solid tumors.

The Solid Tumors Subdivision includes a wide variety of technical approaches to pathologic diagnosis. PCR, FISH, quantitative PCR, cytogenetics are more or less standard approaches to solid tumor diagnosis. Additional technologies that are of great utility to the molecular diagnosis of solid tumors include tools for the analysis of RNA and protein. In addition, new approaches to the analysis of solid tumors include flow cytometric approaches to the detection of solid tumor cells in circulation, the use of imaging technologies to identify and analyze tumor cells specifically, even in a complex cell mixture and sorting technologies, also for the enhancement and quantification of tumor cell populations.
