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.
