Product Description

XL Iso(17q)

XL Iso(17q) consists of a green-labeled probe hybridizing to the TP53 gene region at 17p13 and an orange-labeled probe hybridizing to the MPO gene region at 17q22.

Probe maps are created in accordance with the intended purpose of the product. Solid colored bars do not necessarily indicate that the probe fully covers the indicated genomic region. Therefore, caution is advised when interpreting results generated through off-label use. Probe map details based on UCSC Genome Browser GRCh37/hg19. Map components not to scale. Further information is available on request.

Clinical Details

An isochromosome of the long arm of chromosome 17, i(17q), is the most frequent genetic abnormality observed during the disease progression of Philadelphia chromosome positive (Ph+) chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). The breakpoints are located in the short arm of chromosome 17 within the Smith-Magenis critical region at 17p11. In neuroblastoma and other hematologic malignancies, amplification of 17q is a significant predictive factor for adverse outcome.
Isochromosome 17q, or i(17q), is ocurring in primitive neuroectodermal tumor/medulloblastoma (50%), chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).

Clinical Applications

  • Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML)
  • Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
  • Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)

IVDR Certification

MetaSystems Probes has received IVDR certification for our initial 26 fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) probes from the notified body, BSI. Achieving this milestone was not without its challenges, and we are delighted to have accomplished IVDR certification for this probe set at an early stage.
