Oncology Testing:

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

  • AML is a rapidly progressing disease, with many possible genetic changes driving the overproduction of immature myeloid white blood cells.

  • Quick turnaround time is crucial in identifying the possible underlying genetic cause of this leukemia.

  • KSL Diagnostics guarantees 24 hour results for PML/RARA and a full panel of FISH probes to guide treatment decisions.

Sample Requirements:

  • Peripheral Blood or Bone Marrow

    • 2-5mL in a sodium heparin (green top) tube. 5 mL in a EDTA (purple top) will be accepted but is not preferred.

    • Minimum: 1 mL

  • Storage:  Room temperature if being shipped within 24 hours.  Refrigerate if shipping will be delayed.

  • Stability: Sample is optimum if received within 48 hours.

  • Transportation:  Room temperature (do not freeze or fix)
