About 100 guests from 36 countries met on the XVIII. MetaSystems Distributor Meeting (DM) in November to exchange experiences and to get to know new trends and developments at MetaSystems.

- 100 µl (10 Tests)
XL t(7;12) MNX1/ETV6 consists of an orange-labeled probe hybridizing to the MNX1 gene region at 7q36 and a green-labeled probe hybridizing to the ETV6 gene region at 12p13.2.
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.
Several recurrent balanced translocations and inversions, and their variants, are recognized in the WHO category acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with recurrent genetic abnormalities. Furthermore, several cytogenetic abnormalities are considered sufficient to establish the WHO diagnosis of AML with myelodysplasia-related features if 20% or more blood or marrow blasts are present.
The t(7;12)(q36;p13) translocation is a recurrent chromosome abnormality which involves the ETV6 gene on chromosome 12 and has been identified in 20–30% of infant patients with AML. The detection of t(7;12) rearrangements relies on the use of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) because this translocation is hardly visible by chromosome banding methods. The clinical outcome of t(7;12) patients is believed to be poor, therefore an early and accurate diagnosis is important in the clinical management and treatment.
