Test Description

This test is performed by the sequencing the entire coding regions of the genes listed. ABL1, ASXL1, ATRX, BCOR, BCORL1, BRAF, CALR, CBL, CBLB, CBLC, CDKN2A, CEBPA, CSF3R, CUX1, DNMT3A, ETV6, EZH2, FBXW7, FLT3, GATA1, GATA2, GNAS, HRAS, IDH1, IDH2, IKZF1, JAK2 including V617F and Exons 12+14, JAK3, KDM6A, KIT, KRAS, MLL, MPL, MYD88, NF1, NOTCH1, NPM1, NRAS, PDGFRA, PHF6, PPM1D, PTEN, PTPN11, RAD21, RUNX1, SETBP1, SF3B1, SMC1A, SMC3, SRSF2, STAG2, TET2, TP53, U2AF1, WT1, ZRSR2. CALR and FLT3 are performed by multiple methods. Test orders include summary interpretation of all results together.

Clinical Significance

The NeoTYPE Myeloid Disorders Profile is a 56 gene panel that targets known mutations associated with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML). Testing using this panel can aid in making therapy decisions, predicting prognosis, and can be used in clinical research. This is a generic and comprehensive profiling of myeloid neoplasms.

Specimen Requirements
  • Bone marrow (Preferred): 2 mL in EDTA tube.
  • Peripheral blood: 5 mL in EDTA tube.
  • FFPE tissue: Paraffin block. Alternatively, send 1 H&E slide plus 5-10 unstained slides cut at 5 or more microns. Please use positively-charged slides and 10% NBF fixative is the recommended fixative. Do not use zinc or mercury fixatives (B5). Highly acidic or prolonged decalcification processes will not yield sufficient nucleic acid to accurately perform molecular studies.
Storage and Transportation

Use cold pack for transport, making sure cold pack is not in direct contact with specimen. Ship same day as drawn whenever possible; specimens <72 hours old preferred.
