AML1-ETO/t (8;21)(q22;q22)/ RUNX1-RUNX1T1 is a recurrent genetic abnormality in both childhood and adult Acute Myeloid Leukemia (5-10% of all AML and nearly 40% of the AML FAB M2 subtype). Although this translocation is associated with a good prognosis, only 50% of patients are cured and its rapid molecular identification is crucial for risk stratification of patients and therapeutic decisions.

Why to choose it

Molecular identification of AML1-ETO translocations in 15 minutes directly from RNA. Effective screening of AML is now possible.

For use on


DiaSorin Molecular Iam AML1-ETO Kit
Ultra Rapid

Identification of positive samples in less than 15 min, starting from extracted RNA.

Results in < 15 minutes
One step,
closed format

The assay works directly on 500 ng RNA with no need for multistep procedures: decreased risk of contamination and errors.

100% specific

No false positive results and absence of primer dimers.

Validated on 610 replicates

The Analytical Specificity has been established on negative cell line RNA extracted by both the Qiagen RNeasy kit and modified Trizol.

Highly Sensitive

Detection of the AML1-ETO translocation in 10 thousand folds diluted samples in less than 20 minutes.

160 replicates

The test consistently detects the AML1-ETO transcript down to 10-4 dilution (Kasumi-1 in HL60) in less than 20 minutes, both on Qiagen and manual extracted RNA. Dilutions at 10-5 of Kasumi-1 in HL60, have also been revealed with a probability close to 60%.

65 clinical samples

Clinical archived RNA samples, extracted by Qiagen RNeasy kit, modified TRIzol and Maxwell, have been retrospectively tested by Q-LAMP and the results have been compared RT-PCR and found to be full concordant.

Superior robustness to inhibitors, RNA degradation and suboptimal target quantities.

The intrinsic robustness of the enzyme employed in Q-LAMP results in a enhanced robustness versus the classical inhibitor factors of PCR.
