New York DOH Approval Status
This test is New York DOH approved.
Specimen Required
Patient Preparation
Collect

Lavender (EDTA) or bone marrow (EDTA). Also acceptable: RNA extracted by CLIA certified lab.

Specimen Preparation

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 40 uL RNA with at least 40 ng/uL concentration. (Min: 40 uL) 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.

Storage/Transport Temperature

Whole Blood or 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.

Unacceptable Conditions

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.

Remarks
