FLT3 Mutation Testing is performed pursuant to patents licensed from Takara Bio Inc. of Kusatsu (Shiga prefecture), Japan.

Reference Range
By report.

Clinical Significance
Used to track and identify previously detected FLT3 ITD mutations in post treatment follow up samples, a multiplex master mix targeting the juxtamembrane domain of the FLT3 gene is used to amplify DNA extracted from a patient sample.
