What is flow cytometry?

It is a rapid, multiparametric, diagnostic support test with high sensitivity to detect low-frequency populations, which can also be quantified as absolute and relative values. They are useful in the classification, follow-up, and evaluation of prognostic markers in leukemia and lymphomas, as well as in lymphocyte counts for patients with autoimmune diseases, immunodeficiency, response to a monoclonal antibody, therapy, and in stem cell counts for future bone marrow transplant patients.

The specimens received at the service are bone marrow, peripheral blood, body fluids, and any tissue suspected of neoplastic infiltration.

Flow cytometry defines hematopoietic cells from a different point of view

Fundación Valle del Lili has had this service for 12 years and is staffed by highly qualified medical and laboratory professionals, state-of-the-art flow cytometers, and antibody panels that follow international consensus guidelines with internal and external quality controls.

The Fundación Valle del Lili flow cytometry service has the following services available to all our patients and medical specialists:

  • Immunotyping and classification of hematolymphoid neoplasms in multiple specimens
  • Evaluation of minimal residual disease of acute leukemia and lymphomas
  • Characterization and counting of T lymphocytes, Natural Killer (NK) lymphocytes, and B lymphocytes
  • Quantification of stem cells (CD34+) in peripheral blood and apheresis
  • Respiratory burst test

At Fundación Valle del Lili’s flow cytometry laboratory we have state-of-the-art technology that allows us to provide our users with the best quality health care. Our differentiating factors are:

  • State-of-the-art flow cytometers, 3 lasers, and 10 colors
  • Antibody panels designed in innovative combinations
  • High-quality standards and good practices recommended globally
  • Articulated work with clinical groups

If you are a patient with a diagnosis of a benign or malignant hematological disease, and you have been referred by your treating physician, the flow cytometry service will be able to identify and phenotypically characterize the cell populations of the sample with the best quality, efficiency, and speed.

Our team consists of 3 bacteriologists trained in flow cytometry and 3 medical specialists in pathology with an emphasis on Hematopathology and flow cytometry.
