The flow cytometry laboratory performs rapid identification and quantification of subsets of cells using laser-activated fluorescent antibodies to cell surface markers. Using up to eight different markers simultaneously, abnormal populations of cells can be identified with a high level of sensitivity to aid in the diagnosis of leukemias and lymphomas.
Other tests offered include:
- Quantitation of CD4 T-cells for monitoring of HIV
- Measurement of hematopoietic stem cells
- Measurement of maternal-fetal bleed, and
- Evaluation of cellular subsets for immunodeficiency diagnosis.
