Available as global and tech-only. This add-on panel is available to clarify findings on samples currently having flow cytometry analysis at NeoGenomics and is not available for stand-alone testing. Markers are CD2, CD25, CD34, CD45, and CD117 (5 markers).
Used to determine if mast cells are aberrantly expressing CD2 and CD25, which can indicate malignancy.
Flow cytometry testing can be performed on bone marrow aspirate, peripheral blood, fresh bone marrow core biopsy, unfixed tissue, and body fluids. Please see full specimen requirements for either Standard Leukemia/Lymphoma Analysis or Extended Leukemia/Lymphoma Analysis as this add-on panel is available in combination with either of those full panels.
Specimens should be received at NeoGenomics within 72 hours from collection to assure sample integrity and acceptable cell viability. Refrigerate specimen. Do not freeze. Use cold pack for transport, making sure cold pack is not in direct contact with specimen.
