Alternative Name
AML Prognostic
Methodology
Molecular
Test Description
Routine cytogenetics with automatic addition of the NeoTYPE™ AML Prognostic Profile when cytogenetics results show intermediate risk including normal cytogenetics, +6, +8, -Y, or del(12p).
Clinical Significance
The AML Reflex Panel combines cytogenetics and molecular testing to identify AML patients with intermediate-risk cytogenetic abnormalities that can benefit from molecular profiling. Use of the NeoTYPE AML Prognostic Profile in these patients can improve risk stratification by confirming intermediate risk or reclassifying patients to favorable or unfavorable risk categories.
Specimen Requirements
  • Peripheral blood: 2-5 mL in sodium heparin tube and 2x5 mL in EDTA tube.
  • Bone marrow: 1-2 mL in sodium heparin tube and 2 mL in EDTA tube.
Storage and Transportation
Use cold pack for transport, making sure cold pack is not in direct contact with specimen.
