Specimen Required
Patient Preparation
  
Collect
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
   
Remarks
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.

Note
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).
