Oncology Test Highlights

Rapid Acute Myeloid Leukemia Targeted Therapy Mutation Panel (3017050)

  • Our rapid acute myeloid leukemia (AML) targeted therapy mutational panel offers a quick turnaround time, which is critical in the timely identification of prognostic markers and advantageous for immediate patient management. The panel assesses regions from nine genes with known clinical significance in hematologic malignancies and therefore aids in the diagnosis of AML subtypes. This panel should be ordered upon initial diagnosis or overt relapse of AML.
  • Results are reported within 3 to 7 days.

Solid Tumor Oncology

Gain Deeper Insights With Massively Parallel Sequencing

ARUP has transitioned several solid tumor oncology tests to massively parallel sequencing (also known as next generation sequencing, or NGS) and to tumor-specific panels.

  • Massively parallel sequencing provides a deeper and more accurate view of the molecular map of individual tumors.
  • Tumor-specific panels are designed for the most common solid tumor types (lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and melanoma) and align with National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines for gene coverage.
  • By testing multiple genes at once, panels save time and money, and reduce the risk of exhausting tissue.
