PCR using primers that span the region commonly associated with  acquired JAK2 exon 12 mutations, followed by fragment analysis using capillary electrophoresis, and allele-specific PCR. Approximately 80% of all currently known JAK2 exon 12 mutations are detected by this method including those commonly associated with polycythaemia. 

Diagnostic Use / Indications

Negative for JAK2 V617F mutation.
