Direct Immunofluorescence using flow cytometric techniques.
Evaluation of Rituximab therapy. A full lymphoid cell panel is run, including B and T cell quantitation and natural killer cell quantitation. Markers include CD3, CD4, CD8, CD16/56, CD19, CD20 and CD4:CD8 ratio (T4:T8 ratio). See http://www.pathology.med.umich.edu/handbook/Tables/Flow_Cytometry_Panel… for all Flow Cytometry Panels.

Collect specimen in a yellow top ACD A or B Vacutainer® tube.
Include a copy of the patient's complete blood count (CBC) and white cell differential drawn concurrently or within the previous 8 hours.
Send intact whole blood stored at room temperature within 72 hours of collection; do not refrigerate.
Additional testing will be run at the discretion of the hematopathologist at an additional charge with interpretation if clinically indicated. By ordering this test the clinician acknowledges that additional reflex testing will be performed and billed at a separate additional charge if indicated.
