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.
