Test Code C10 Flow Cytometry (Comprehensive Flow Cytometry Panel)

Important Note

This panel of 26 different antibodies detects most cases of Acute Leukemia and Lymphoma. It is composed of major and Minor Myeloid-Sssociated Markers (CD11b, CD13, CD14, CD15, CD16, CD33, CD64) Activation and Blastic Markers (CD34, CD38, CD117, HLA-DR), T-Cell-Associated Markers (CD2, CD3, CD4, CD5, CD7, CD8, CD56, CD16) and pertinent B-Cell-Associated Markers (CD19, CD20, CD5, CD10, CD11c, Kappa, Lambda). All are anchored by CD45, using a 6 gate strategy on the CD45 vs logarithmic (side) scatter.
