Order a Test

We make it easy to order our comprehensive genomic profiling tests for your advanced cancer patients.


Ordering Overview

Foundation Medicine tests must be ordered by a licensed physician. We offer multiple ways to order our tests:

  • Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Systems: our integrations with EMR systems, like Epic® and OncoEMR®, will allow you to place an order for a test directly through your practice's EMR system if enabled
  • Foundation Medicine’s Online Portal: login or sign up for an online account
  • Email or Fax: download or print our Test Requisition Form. Completed forms and associated attachments can be submitted via email to or via fax to +1 (617) 418-2290

If sending a solid tumor specimen, Foundation Medicine can complete the specimen retrieval process if requested on the order form (complete pathology lab information must be provided). If sending peripheral blood or bone marrow aspirate, please order the appropriate test kit with the form below to your practice and follow the specimen preparation instructions for liquid specimens.

How to Order

How to Order a Foundation Medicine Test

If you will be sending an FFPE block or unstained slides to Foundation Medicine for testing with FoundationOne®CDx or FoundationOne®Heme, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Place a test order through your EMR system if enabled or order online by logging in or signing-up for a Foundation Medicine account. Orders can also be submitted via email or fax using our Test Requisition Form.
  2. Complete the order form, provide any required attachments including Advanced Beneficiary Notice if needed, and submit. Some pathology labs require patient consent prior to releasing a specimen for testing, so providing us with a completed Specimen Release Consent Form up front can help avoid potential order delays.
  3. Foundation Medicine will contact the pathologist if requested during the ordering process with instructions for sample procurement and shipment. If you will be arranging for specimen shipment yourself, please do so after submitting the order form. To request a Specimen Shipping Kit please contact client services or fill out our Order a Shipping Kit form below.
  4. You will receive online or printed results typically 8 days or less from receipt of specimen for FoundationOne CDx.



We know how important efficiency is for your clinical workflow. That’s why we’re partnering with EMR systems like Epic and OncoEMR to integrate our comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) tests and our other testing services into your practices’ workflow. Once enabled, our EMR integrations allow providers to place orders for our CGP tests and receive and view test results directly within their existing workflow.

To learn more about our EMR integrations, please contact your Commercial Program Manager or reach out to our Client Services team at or +1 (888) 988-3639.

Important Safety Information


FoundationOne CDx

FoundationOne®CDx is a qualitative next-generation sequencing based in vitro diagnostic test for cancer patients with solid tumors and is for prescription use only. The test analyzes 324 genes as well as genomic signatures including microsatellite instability (MSI) and tumor mutational burden (TMB) and is a companion diagnostic to identify patients who may benefit from treatment with specific therapies in accordance with the approved therapeutic product labeling. Additional genomic findings may be reported and are not prescriptive or conclusive for labeled use of any specific therapeutic product. Use of the test does not guarantee a patient will be matched to a treatment. A negative result does not rule out the presence of an alteration. Some patients may require a biopsy.
