BCR-ABL1 Non-Standard p230Effective Monday, June 6th, reflex option to BCR-ABL1 p230 testing when BCR-ABL1 Standard p210, p190 is negative will be available.

  • BCR-ABL1 p230 translocation is a very rare abnormality in Ph+ chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients.
  • Testing for BCR-ABL1 p230 translocation may be necessary only if the more common p210 and p190 BCR-ABL1 translocations are tested negative.
  • Ordering option will appear as follows:
    • Paper requisition: BCR-ABL1 Standard p210, p190 with reflex to BCR-ABL1 Non-Standard p230 if negative
    • Online Ordering:

      Note: Test is RNA-based, hence NOT suitable for Freeze & Hold option
  • Reflex option to BCR-ABL1 p230 is not available to New York clients as the test is not NYSDOH-approved.
  • No changes apply to CPT codes or pricing.


FLT3 Testing with NeoTYPE® Heme ProfilesEffective Monday, June 6, FLT3 by PCR (via FLT3 Mutation Analysis) will be available to be ordered, as Client-Bill only, in conjunction with the following NeoTYPE® Heme Profiles:

  • NeoTYPE® AML Prognostic Profile
  • NeoTYPE® MDS/CMML Profile
  • NeoTYPE® Myeloid Disorders Profile

It will be an additional test order and reported separately from the NeoTYPE® Profile (which includes the FLT3 gene by NGS). This test combination is intended to be used for the purpose of prompt therapy selection in patients with a new diagnosis of AML.

Ordering options will be available as follows:

  • NeoTYPE® AML Prognostic Profile
  • NeoTYPE® AML Prognostic Profile (plus FLT3 by PCR)
  • NeoTYPE® MDS/CMML Profile
  • NeoTYPE® MDS/CMML Profile (plus FLT3 by PCR)
  • NeoTYPE® Myeloid Disorders Profile
  • NeoTYPE® Myeloid Disorders Profile (plus FLT3 by PCR)

Note: This new ordering structure will replace the current process which, by default, includes preliminary FLT3 testing by PCR with all orders of the aforementioned NeoTYPE® Profiles.

Please contact your local NeoGenomics Sales Consultant or our Client Services team at 1.866.776.5907 option 3 for pricing.

 

Update to NeoTYPE® Colorectal and Endometrial Profiles: Effective Monday, June 6th, MLH1 Promoter Methylation Analysis will be removed from these two solid tumor profiles. Microsatellite instability analysis and BRAF mutation analysis by NGS remain part of these profiles for Lynch Syndrome assessment and interpretation, respectively. Options to follow up MSI-high results include add-on MMR IHC and/or stand-alone MLH1 Promoter Methylation Analysis.

This change is part of ongoing efforts to maintain efficiency in our laboratory. No price or CPT code changes apply to the impacted NeoTYPE Profiles.
