Useful For

Diagnostic workup of patients with a high probability of BCR-ABL1-positive hematopoietic neoplasms, particularly acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-lymphoblastic leukemia), to provide a pretreatment quantitative level of BCR-ABL1 mRNA transcript if the initial diagnostic RT-PCR screen is positive

 

When positive, the reflex test provides a quantitative value for the corresponding e1-a2 (p190) BCR-ABL1 mRNA fusion variant
