Specimen(s):
Blood
Collection Medium:
Pink top tube 6 mL (K2-EDTA)
Minimum:
Adults: 3 mL whole blood. Testing requires a dedicated tube.
Delivery Instructions:
Room temperature for up to 24 hours, then refrigerate the whole blood if it is necessary to be held overnight, or weekends, or holidays.
Testing Schedule:
Weekly
Turn Around Time:
7-10 days
Reference Range:
Mutation not detected
Comments:
The exon 12 coding sequencing and flanking splice sites of the ASXL1 gene are amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and sequenced in both directions. The reference sequence with which this patient's DNA sequence is compared is NM_015338.
Methodology:
Massively parallel next generation sequencing on DNA
