Interpretive Data
Probes included: RPN1/MECOM (EVI1), EGR1, D7S486, RUNX1T1/RUNX1, KMT2A (MLL), and CBFB. The probe for PML/RARα is added automatically and is performed along with the panel. However, due to the longer turnaround time required for the panel, the result of this probe is reported as soon as available and is charged separately. (See PML-RARA Translocation by FISH, ARUP test code 2002363)
