Cellular Immunology

Cellular Immunology

Molecular Pathology Laboratory Network, Inc. (MPLN) has been a leader in laboratory medicine since its establishment. Our Flow Cytometry technologists, utilizing state-of-the-art instrumentation, specialize in cellular immunology. They offer a comprehensive range of services to diagnose and monitor hematologic disorders and therapeutic immune responses.

Clinical Utility

Immunophenotypic analysis by multiparameter flow cytometry is a powerful tool in the evaluation of hematolymphoid neoplasia. At MPLN, interdisciplinary testing on a single sample is reviewed closely to enhance the flow cytometry data; this includes clinical, morphologic, molecular, and genetic findings.

By analyzing the expression of cell surface and cytoplasmic markers, abnormal cells can be identified, enumerated, and characterized with respect to cell lineage and maturation. The sensitivity of the technology and the ability to process and analyze large amounts of data quickly allows flow cytometry to be used to:

  • Characterize/classify
    • Hematolymphoid neoplasia
    • Myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative processes
    • Acute leukemias
    • B-cell neoplasms
    • Plasma cell disorders
    • T-cell/NK cell neoplasms
    • Rare/unusual processes (mast cell disorders, etc.)
  • Determine proliferative rates of lymphomas
  • Determine treatment efficacy/monitor for
    residual disease

Multiparameter Immunophenotyping by Flow Cytometry

Flow cytometry is one of the principal tools used for immunophenotyping, receptor occupancy testing, and MRD detection, all of which are critical for patient management and late-stage research investigations. Our flow cytometry services include:
  • Comprehensive lymphoma and/or leukemia immunophenotyping
  • Lymphocyte screening (B, T, NK cells)
  • Monoclonal gammopathy (B-cell, plasma cell)
  • Residual disease (specified)
  • PNH
  • Customized receptor occupancy assays
  • Other special markers
  • Peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) isolation

Innovative. Comprehensive. Consultative.

Designed to provide accurate, reliable, and clinically relevant data in a timely fashion.
