Alternative Name
Myeloproliferative Neoplasms Standard Reflex Panel
Methodology
Molecular
Test Description

Sequential testing panel including qualitative detection of JAK2 V617F, JAK2 Exon 12-14, and MPL exon 10. Testing proceeds by reflex through the three-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 separately. For reflex testing including CALR mutation analysis, please see the separate listing for MPN Extended Reflex Panel. Testing is approved for specimens from the state of New York. 

Clinical Significance

This testing pathway identifies mutations associated with the myeloproliferative neoplasms polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), and primary myelofibrosis (PMF). Mutation analysis helps differentiate reactive conditions from MPNs.

Specimen Requirements

  • Bone marrow: 2 mL in EDTA tube.
