Comments

This test should be ordered when a neoplastic process is suspected in the peripheral blood. The pathologist will review a peripheral blood smear to determine the necessity of immunophenotyping by flow cytometry. If additional flow cytometry testing is performed a pathologist interpretation (billed from Pediatric Pathology Associates) will be ordered and charged to the patient. Call 614-722-5482 with any questions.
