JAK2 V617F Mutation Detection, Varies
Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing
Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen. This field describes the type of specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing. The volume allows automated processing, fastest throughput and, when indicated, repeat or reflex testing.
Specimen Type: Extracted DNA from blood or bone marrow
Container/Tube: 1.5- to 2-mL tube with indication of volume and concentration of the DNA
Specimen Volume: Entire specimen
Collection Instructions: Label specimen as extracted DNA from blood or bone marrow
Specimen Stability Information: Refrigerated/Ambient
1. Hematopathology Patient Information Sheet (Supply T676) in Special Instructions
2. If not ordering electronically, complete, print, and send a Hematopathology/Cytogenetics Test Request Form (T726) with the specimen (www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/media/customer-service/forms/hematopathology-request-form.pdf).
Specimen Minimum Volume Defines the amount of specimen required to perform an assay once, including instrument and container dead space. Submitting the minimum specimen volume makes it impossible to repeat the test or perform confirmatory or perform reflex testing. In some situations, a minimum specimen volume may result in a QNS (quantity not sufficient) result, requiring a second specimen to be collected.
Extracted DNA from blood or bone marrow: 50 microliter at 20 ng/microliter
Bone marrow biopsies, slides, paraffin shavings or frozen tissues and paraffin-embedded tissues, or paraffin-embedded bone marrow aspirates
Specimen Stability Information Provides a description of the temperatures required to transport a specimen to the laboratory. Alternate acceptable temperature(s) are also included.
