Test Name: MPN Extended Reflex Panel  

Methodology: Molecular Genetics

Test Description

Sequential testing panel including analysis of JAK2 V617F, JAK2 Exon 12-14, CALR exon 9, and MPL exon 10. Testing proceeds by reflex through the four-step panel until a mutation is identified, when the result is considered informative and no further testing is performed. Testing is performed on plasma for increased sensitivity whenever possible. Tests may also be ordered individually or as a three-step reflex panel without CALR in the MPN Standard Reflex Panel (see separate listing).
