Background

Immunophenotypic analysis by multiparameter flow cytometry is a powerful tool in the evaluation of hematolymphoid neoplasia. Flow cytometry characterizes cells to classify disease, guide sequential testing, monitor efficacy of treatment (minimal residual disease) and rule out a reactive process.

At MPLN with a turnaround time of one day, flow cytometry is highly specific and sensitive for the evaluation of leukemia, lymphoma and other hematological abnormalities. Interdisciplinary testing on a single sample is reviewed closely to enhance the flow cytometry data; this includes clinical, morphologic, molecular, and genetic findings.
