Large T cell therapy add-on tube pin

FLOW

Large T cell therapy add-on tube

Panel Components:
CD3, CD25, CD30, CD45, CD52, HLA-DR

Methodology: FLOW

Clinical Significance:
This two-tube add-on is used when the population of interest shows large cell size by morphology and/or forward light scatter, and when evaluation of CD30 and CD25 expression is of interest. The base antibodies for these add-on tubes include CD45, CD52, CD30, CD3, CD25, and HLA-DR; additional T cell-associated antigens, such as CD5, CD4, and CD8, may be evaluated in this tube to aid in identification of the abnormal population.
