Mentype® AMLplexQS PCR Amplification Kit

Investigate gene fusions in AML diagnostics


  • Fast decision-making in AML diagnostics in just 3 hours
  • Enables guideline-conform detection of 11 gene fusions in just one workflow
  • Reliable results through comprehensive control concept
  • Registered CE-IVD product

Mentype® AMLplexQS is the comprehensive multiplex approach for a fast detection of genetic aberrations associated with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The assay helps to reduce hands-on time to a minimum by detecting all 11 gene fusions with a total of 34 transcript variants in a single multiplex-PCR reaction. RNA isolated from blood or bone marrow is transcribed into cDNA and subsequently amplified using the kit’s optimized components for multiplex analysis.

Scientific Background

The evaluation of specific chromosomal aberrations has high prognostic value in nearly all types of acute leukemia. Molecular biological evidence of chromosomal aberrations (translocations) represents an important diagnostic completion. Detecting specific translocations enables the subtype classification of leukemic diseases and provides essential information for the risk-directed therapy of patients. According to the ELN Guidelines 2022 [1] and WHO guidelines 2016 [2] the stratification and risk categorization according to genetic abnormalities in AML is strongly recommended.

Mentype® AMLplexQS facilitates the detection of the most common chromosomal aberrations observed so far in AML and represents a simple-to-use, routine-fit, and reliable screening tool.
