- Screening of 6 most common mutations on exon12 JAK2 gene
- Compatible with FAM Color Real-Time PCR Instruments (Melting Curve Analysis)
Mutations within exon 12 of the JAK2 gene occur in most cases of JAK2 V617F-mutation negative polycythemia vera. Testing for JAK2 exon 12 mutations may aid in the diagnosis of polycythemia vera and is recommended in patients with JAK2 V617F-negative erythrocytosis. This test will qualitatively detect JAK2 exon 12 mutations in peripheral blood or bone marrow specimens with a sensitivity down to 2% mutant allele. This is a second order test and should be used only following a JAK2 V617F-negative result.
