Specimen(s):
Whole Blood, Bone Marrow
Collection Medium:
or and
Pink top tube Lavender top tube 3 mL (EDTA) Lavender top tube 3 mL (EDTA)
Minimum:
3 mL of whole blood or bone marrow aspirate. Specimens for which the AML blast count is at least 10% will be tested. Testing on smaller volumes may be attempted. However, this may compromise the ability to perform testing. Testing requires a dedicated collection tube.
Delivery Instructions:
Testing is generally not available on a STAT basis. However, expedited testing can be arranged by contacting the Molecular Pathology Laboratory at 384-9568 or the Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellow (pager #8682).
Testing Schedule:
0800-1700 Testing offered once per week excluding weekends and University holidays.
Turn Around Time:
7-10 working days
Reference Range:
Negative
Comments:
KIT AML Mutation Analysis detected exons related to patients with AML. If patient has GIST or melanoma, order KIT Mutation Analysis (LAB7660). This is a sequence-based assay. This test is not intended to detect the D816 mutation in bone marrow for mast cell disease or to detect minimal residual disease (see KIT Mutation (D816V) Mast Cell Disease (LAB7567).
Methodology:
PCR followed by DNA sequencing.
