Flow-through cytometry

The CD57+Immune cells can correlate with pathogen activity, indicate a weakened immune system and are used as diagnostic markers.

The CD57+Immune cells are measured with the established method of flow-through cytometry, which is used in many areas of medicine for cell characterisation. The CD57+cells are natural killer (NK) cells.

Material: 1 x Heparin tubes + 1 x EDTA tubes (Do not centrifuge. Store at room temperature. Do not cool.)

Turnaround time: Two days (Note: Taking into account the required pre- and post-analytical work, the report is created in about one week)
