Diagnostic Use / Indications

Quantitation of BCR-ABL1 p210 transcripts in peripheral blood for diagnosis and monitoring. Transcripts resulting from the two major breakpoints, BCR-ABL1 e13a2 (b2a2) and e14a2 (b3a2), and an endogenous control gene ABL1 are amplified and results are expressed as a ratio percent (BCR-ABL1/ABL x 100) according to the International Scale (IS).

Reference Interval

Results are expressed as a % ratio of BCR-ABL1 to ABL1 transcript and reported to international standardisation (IS).

Limit of Quantitation: at least 4 logs reduction from baseline, i.e. 0.010% (IS).

Additional Information

Please Note: This assay will only detect the two common BCR-ABL1 p210 transcripts.  If a diagnostic sample is negative for BCR-ABL1 p210 transcripts by the Xpert BCR-ABL Ultra Assay we recommend that BCR-ABL1 testing by FISH is performed to exclude rarer BCR-ABL1 transcripts associated with CML/ALL.

Samples arriving in the weekend will not be processed until Monday morning unless that will be more than 72 hours post collection.  If weekend processing is required there will be an additional on-call charge of approximately $180.
