When positive, the test identifies which mRNA fusion variant is present to guide selection of an appropriate monitoring assay.

 

If a quantitative monitoring assay is not available for a rare fusion variant, this assay may be of some value for monitoring, as it is quite sensitive and can provide a positive or negative result.
