Being responsive to immunotherapy would definitely be huge. If it were me I would insist on retesting with a fresh sample, and I would pay for it myself if necessary. It doesn't have to be Foundation One.
If the MSI test that they did was "equivocal" they could do another test with a different tissue sample, and they could use the same approach or the alternate approach to testing. In my opinion, there is no excuse to accept an "equivocal" finding. They should persevere until they get a good result that is unequivocal.
