Flow Cytometry

Flow cytometry is used in basic research to help diagnose and manage certain diseases, including cancer. This laboratory method that measures the number of cells, the percentage of live cells, and certain characteristics of cells, such as size and shape, in a sample of blood, bone marrow, or other tissue. Flow Cytometry is used at University Cancer & Blood Center to help providers with the diagnosis of hematological disorders. Flow cytometry uses an instrument that counts, sorts, and analyzes cells that are labeled with targets that pass through an electronic detection device. This device sorts the cells into different populations. So, if a patient has a blood cell disorder, it can be identified. We use this test for our Monoclonal Gammopathy patients, Leukemia / lymphoma patients, and anemia patients, just to name a few.
