Use to detect and quantitate PML-RARA fusion transcripts in patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia. Use to monitor minimal residual disease and assess the risk of disease relapse.
Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction
RNA isolation: Sun-Sat
Assay: Sun, Tue, Thu
Lavender (EDTA) or bone marrow (EDTA). Also acceptable: RNA extracted by CLIA certified lab.
Whole Blood: Transport 5 mL whole blood. (Min: 1 mL)
Bone Marrow: Transport 3 mL bone marrow. (Min: 1 mL)
Specimens must be received within 48 hours of collection due to lability of RNA.
Extracted RNA: Transport 40uL RNA with at least 40 ng/uL concentration (Min: 40uL). Transport RNA in a tissue transport kit (ARUP Supply #47808) available online through eSupply using ARUP Connect™ or contact ARUP Client Services at (800) 522-2787.
Whole Blood and Bone Marrow: CRITICAL REFRIGERATED. Separate specimens must be submitted when multiple tests are ordered.
Extracted RNA: CRITICAL FROZEN. Separate specimens must be submitted when multiple tests are ordered.
Serum, plasma, CSF, extracted DNA, RNA extracted by a non-CLIA lab, bone core, or FFPE tissue. Specimens collected in anticoagulants other than EDTA. Severely hemolyzed or clotted specimens.
Ambient: 1 hour; Refrigerated: 48 hours; Frozen: Unacceptable
Extracted RNA: Ambient: Unacceptable; Refrigerate: Unacceptable; Frozen: Indefinitely
