Testing Algorithm

This test reflexively evaluates for variants in the CALR and MPL genes commonly associated with BCR/ABL1-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms. The testing sequence is based on the reported frequency of gene variants in this disease group. It is usually ordered when a JAK2 V617F result is known to be negative. Initial testing evaluates for the presence of the CALR insertions and deletions. If out-of-frame CALR insertions or deletions are detected, the testing algorithm ends. If the CALR result is negative or an in-frame CALR insertion or deletion is identified, then testing proceeds, at an additional charge, to evaluate for variants in exon 10 of the MPL gene by Sanger sequencing. An integrated report is issued with the summary of test results.
