Presented at the Association For Molecular Pathology (AMP) 2016 annual meeting in Charlotte, NC, USA in November 2016, this poster outlines how the SureSeq™ Core MPN Panel can accurately detect alleles down to 1% variant allele fraction (VAF) in JAK2 (V617F) at a read depth of >1000x, facilitating reliable detection, not only single nucleotide variants, but also 5 bp insertions in JAK2 (exon 12) and deletions of up to 52 bp in CALR (exon 9). 


  • Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are a group of diseases that affect blood cell production in the bone marrow resulting in the overproduction of one or more cell types. The key MPN driver mutations involve JAK2 (V617F [occurrence of 50-98% depending on the MPN subtype]), JAK2 exon 12, MPL W515K/L and CALR exon 9 insertion and deletions. 
  • Designed for research into the diagnosis, aetiology and prognosis of MPNs, the SureSeq™ Core MPN Panel has been developed by Oxford Gene Technology (OGT) in collaboration with recognised cancer experts to deliver accurate detection (down to a 1% variant allele fraction [VAF]) of somatic variants of these key MPN driver mutations. 
  • The aim of this study is to evaluate the SureSeq Core MPN Panel in conjunction with a new streamlined 1-day hybridisation-based Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) library preparation kit (LPK).
