Bone Marrow Flow Cytometric Analysis
Based on clinical information provided by the client and, in many cases, a morphologic evaluation of the specimen, a ProPath pathologist determines the specific flow cytometric panel to be performed. This panel is composed of a combination of various antibodies for assessing specific cellular populations within the specimen. Various types of abnormal cell populations can be identified. A ProPath pathologist interprets a summary of the immunophenotypic findings and their correlation with morphologic features. If necessary, additional markers may be added to the original panel, at the discretion of the pathologist, to confirm and characterize any aberrant populations.
