Test ID NBLD0570 JAK2 Exon 12 and Other Non-V617F Mutation Detection, Bone Marrow

Useful For

Second-order testing to aid in the distinction between a reactive cytosis and a myeloproliferative neoplasm, particularly when a diagnosis of polycythemia is being entertained; for use with bone marrow specimens

Specimen Type

Bone Marrow


Ordering Guidance


In all cases being evaluated for JAK2 mutation status, the initial test that should be ordered is JAK2M / JAK2 V617F Mutation Detection, Bone Marrow, a sensitive assay for detection of the mutation. However, if no JAK2 V617F mutation is found, further evaluation of JAK2 may be clinically indicated.

 

This test is a second-order test that should be ordered when the test for the JAK2M / JAK2 V617F Mutation Detection, Bone Marrow test is negative.
