Specimen Required
Patient Preparation
Green (sodium heparin).  
Specimen Preparation
Transport 5 mL whole blood.  
Storage/Transport Temperature
Room temperature. Specimen should be received within 24 hours of collection for optimal viability.  
Unacceptable Conditions
Previous leukemia/lymphoma phenotyping is required. If prior studies were not performed at ARUP, the outside flow cytometry report and histograms must accompany the specimen. If outside reports and histograms are not provided, a Leukemia/Lymphoma Phenotyping by Flow Cytometry (ARUP test code 2008003) will be added, at an additional cost. In addition, please provide CBC, Wright's stained smear (if available), clinical history, differential diagnosis, and any relevant pathology reports.  
Ambient: 48 hours; Refrigerated 48 hours; Frozen: Unacceptable

Interpretive Data

See Compliance Statement A:
Statement A: Analyte specific reagents (ASR) are used in many laboratory tests necessary for standard medical care and generally do not require U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval or clearance. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions. This test should not be regarded as investigational or for research use.
This assay is for further characterization of phenotypically abnormal T-cell populations identified by flow cytometry, and to determine whether there is evidence of monoclonality based on expression of T-cell antigen receptor beta chain variable regions (TCR V-Beta).
