Immunophenotyping

Important Note

Immunophenotypes are a collection of related flow cytometric assays used to aid in the identification and characterization of neoplastic disorders of the hematopoetic system. Testing can be performed on blood, bone marrow aspirates, non-GYN fluids, and tissue biopsies. The testing is high complexity, expensive, and time sensitive. Consultation with Hematology/Oncology staff and/or the on-call hematopathologist is strongly advised.
