Test ID: BADX    
BCR/ABL1, Qualitative, Diagnostic Assay, Varies

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Diagnostic workup of patients with high probability of BCR-ABL1-positive hematopoietic neoplasms, predominantly chronic myelogenous leukemia and acute lymphoblastic leukemia

 

When positive, the test identifies which specific mRNA fusion variant is present to guide selection of an appropriate monitoring assay.

 

If a quantitative monitoring assay is not available for a rare fusion variant, this assay may be of some value for monitoring.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

The following algorithms are available in Special Instructions:

-Myeloproliferative Neoplasm: A Diagnostic Approach to Bone Marrow Evaluation
