Offers clear and concise instruction on running, reporting and interpreting immunophenotyping studies 

Written by two well-known haematology educators and experts on the topic, Immunophenotyping for Haematologists contains an introduction to running, reporting and interpreting immunophenotyping studies. The book offers a unique approach to the topic by putting the focus on clinical and laboratory haematologists who are not routinely involved in running and reporting on immunophenotyping studies. 

Immunophenotyping using flow cytometry has become the method of choice in identifying and sorting cells within complex populations, for example, the analysis of immune or neoplastic cells in a blood sample. The text reviews the purpose and principles of immunophenotyping and includes an introduction and explanation of the principles and the role of immunophenotyping. The authors examine immunophenotypic characteristics of the disease groups commonly encountered and identify the features that differentiate malignant cells from normal cells. To enhance understanding, the book contains multiple choice and extended matching questions which integrates immunophenotyping with clinicopathological features and the results of other investigations to mimic everyday practice.  This important book: 

  • Provides a concise introduction to running, reporting and interpreting immunophenotyping studies 
  • Contains a list of all the antibody specificities currently widely used in diagnosis and disease monitoring 
  • Presents an ideal reference for use in laboratories, including immunophenotyping laboratories  
  • Aids in the interpretation by covering immunophenotypic characteristics of commonly encountered disease groups 
  • Identifies the features that differentiate malignant cells from their normal counterparts 

Written for haematologists working in both laboratory and clinical haematology, Immunophenotyping for Haematologists is a much-needed reference for understanding and interpreting immunophenotyping studies.
