Ordering Recommendation

Order only for patients with an established diagnosis of a BCR-ABL1-positive leukemia. Use to determine if a variant is present that would interfere with response to TKI therapy in Philadelphia chromosome positive (Ph+) lymphoblastic leukemia or chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Detects all common mutations, including T315I. For initial BCR-ABL1 testing, refer to Diagnostic Qualitative BCR-ABL1 Assay with Reflex to p190 or p210 Quantitative Assays (3005839).
