MYD88 L265P mutation test
(Haematology)
Investigation : MYD88 L265P mutation test
Specimen type : Bone marrow
Spec container : EDTA 
Volume required : 3 ml
Turnaround : 2 weeks

A hot spot mutation (L265P (CTG > CCG)) in MYD88 gene exists in >90% of lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma (LPL) and at a much less frequency in some other lymphomas. This molecular biology test detects this mutation at DNA level, with a limit of detection of 1% alleles.

Sample requirements: Received via the MCCN HODS within 48 hours of sampling
