Flow Cytometry

CSI Laboratories utilizes a 10-color platform, making it one of the most advanced flow cytometry testing services on the market today.  Our detailed flow cytometry service allows for better utilization of smaller specimens by providing more data per tube, enabling you to manage downstream testing better.

  • The advanced 10-color platform provides more per tube
  • Full characterization of low cellularity samples
  • Reduced interference of co-expression
  • Viability dye in all tubes improves analysis
  • Kappa/Lambda combined in a single tube
  • Flow Manager allows pathologists to interpret and result data online
  • Re-gate using FCS Express Reader

CSI Laboratories also offers:

  • Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH) Testing

High sensitivity FLAER-based analysis; the recommended method to diagnose and monitor PNH clones for treatment using eculizumab therapy.

  • Tech-Only Flow Cytometry

CSI Laboratories provides technical component only flow cytometry to clients who prefer to perform their own professional interpretation. Patient cases are available through our e.CSI Client Portal. In addition to real-time customized pathology reporting, clients are provided with expert hematopathology consult services for difficult flow cytometry cases.

  • Color mapping for abnormal populations allows for quantification and comparison to normal phenotypes
  • Large cells are always presented for B & T cell abnormalities.
  • Data is presented consistently and comprehensively for each cell lineage.
  • Flow Manager allows pathologists to interpret and result data online
  • Re-gate using FCS Express Reader

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.
