CSI also offers high sensitivity FLAER-based analysis; the recommended method to diagnose and monitor PNH clones for treatment using eculizumab therapy.
When I learned that 10-color flow was being offered by CSI, a lab I knew and trusted, I jumped at the chance to try it. When it comes to color, more is better. From my perspective, increased colors exponentially simplify interpretation. The more markers I can compare on the same cells in the same tube, the clearer the immunophenotype.
10 color flow cytometry offers
750% more dot plots than 4 color*
300% more dot plots than 6 color*
61% more dot plots than 8 color*
… a more efficient, accurate diagnosis
of hematopoietic diseases.
