LMP flow cytometry protocols published in the International Journal of Laboratory Hematology


Recently, Dr. Anna Porwit and Amr Rajab, from UHN’s Laboratory Medicine Program (LMP) had their work on flow cytometry protocols presented at a Chicago conference featuring technological innovations in laboratory hematology. Due to high international interest, their protocols for investigating new onset cytopenias have been published in a special issue of the International Journal of Laboratory Hematology.

The protocol has now been practiced at LMP’s Flow Cytometry Laboratory for over two years, and provides benefits to patients with new onset cytopenias, who need to be investigated to exclude acute leukemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), myeloproliferative neoplasms and lymphomas. Dr. Porwit and Amr’s recommended immunophenotyping strategy uses 10-color FCM panels enabling a comprehensive evaluation of patients with cytopenias.
