Lymphocyte Screening Tube: Algorithms for reflex-on testing to ensure an efficient workflow and cost-effective approach

2021/11/09

The EuroFlow Lymphocyte Screening Tube (LST) is a 12-parameter / 8-color flow cytometry test to investigate the lymphocyte populations.
At UHN Hospital, Dr. Tierens developed a comprehensive analysis template that allows the systematic review of the antigen expression profiles of T-, B-, NK-cells and the quantitation of the leukocyte subsets. She also utilizes algorithms covering the range of abnormal results to guide subsequent analysis steps for the diagnosis of Chronic Lymphoproliferative Disorders.

T-cell immunotherapy evaluation

2021/07/06

In this webinar we present a new 7-colour panel for the identification of different subpopulations of naïve and memory T-cells, T cell subsets tube, where the FITC channel is free to include specific protein or markers. Taking full advantage of this panel you could monitor oncologic patients as well as measure the response to vaccines or infections. In addition, in a similar manner, the free FITC channel could be used to evaluate immunotherapies (e.g. for the separation of CAR T cells from the endogenous T cells).

Impact of Standardized Flow Cytometry Protocols on the Diagnostic Accuracy of Acute Leukemias

2021/03/25

Acute leukemia is a heterogeneous group of disease reflecting stem cell of origin, capacity of maturation and commitment to a specific lineage. Leukemic cells may show early or minimal differentiation and some diagnostic entities can easily be confused with others because of their atypical immunophenotype.

Entities associated with a poor prognosis can be misdiagnosed as acute myeloid leukemia with minimal differentiation (AML-M0) if proper immunophenotyping panels are not routinely performed. In this webinar, Rafik Terra will explain how the use of the EuroFlow™ standardized approach has the potential to improve the diagnostic accuracy of rare entities like BPDCN and ETP-ALL.

Impact de la méthode standardisée EuroFlow sur la précision du diagnostic des leucémies aiguës

2021/03/23

Les leucémies aiguës originant de cellules immatures du système hématopoïétique capables de maturation et de différenciation forment un groupe de maladies hétérogène. La classification des leucémies aiguës peut s’avérer laborieuse lorsque les blastes ne démontrent que des signes précoces ou minimes de différenciation.

Certaines entités peuvent être méprises pour des leucémies myéloïdes aiguës avec différenciation minimale (LMA M0) lorsque des panels d’immunophénotypage non exhaustifs sont utilisés. Lors de ce webinaire, Rafik Terra décrira la comparaison d’une approche de cytométrie de flux non standardisée avec l’approche standardisée EuroFlow™. Cette étude a évalué l’impact de l’approche EuroFlow sur la précision du diagnostic des leucémies aiguës et particulièrement des leucémies aiguës peu différenciées.

Implementación de una metodología estandardizada para el estudio de enfermedades oncohematológicas. Experiencia en el HUCA

2021/02/25

La citometría de flujo es una herramienta muy poderosa para la evaluación de patologías oncohematológicas. Esta tecnología ha experimentado una gran evolución a lo largo de las dos últimas décadas traduciéndose en un mayor número de láseres, colores, marcadores y conjugados. Estos avances han permitido que la técnica sea cada vez más potente, pero al mismo tiempo, el manejo de las muestras, de los datos y el análisis se ha vuelto mucho más complejo. En este sentido, la calidad de los resultados que obtiene un laboratorio de citometría de flujo clínica, no puede depender de la experiencia del usuario o del analizador y tienen que ser objetivos, fiables y reproducibles a lo largo del tiempo para poder sacar el máximo partido a los avances tecnológicos.

En este webinar, el Dr. Enrique Colado tratará los retos y desafíos a los que se enfrentan los laboratorios clínicos de citometría, así como los aspectos más relevantes en su resolución. Hará hincapié en la importancia de la estandarización de un laboratorio clínico de citometría y cómo llevarla a cabo, así como la aplicabilidad de protocolos estrictos a nivel preanalítico, analítico y postanalítico.

Capabilities of the flow cytometric OX40 assay to determine specific SARS-CoV-2 T cell responses

2021/02/16

The adaptive immune response to SARS-CoV-2 includes specific antibody and T cell responses. The identification of a subpopulation of specific CD4 effector T cells that present the activation markers CD134 (OX40) and CD25 on their surface, which can be detected and quantified by flow cytometry after incubating blood with mitogens and/or specific antigens of pathogens to study, has demonstrated its utility in other infections

In this webinar, Eduardo López Granados, MD, PhD and Luz Yadira Bravo Gallego, MD explain their preliminary experience as an Immunology laboratory in the setting-up of the OX40 assay for the identification of CD4+ T cell specific responses to SARS-CoV-2 peptides, together with its ongoing application to determine the extent and characteristics of the response to natural infection and vaccination.

Why changing from manual to automated analysis of the LST tube?

2020/11/26

The EuroFlow™ Lymphoid Screening tube (LST) was designed to identify the major T and B-cell subsets, in addition to NK-cells, monocytes, neutrophils and eosinophils. In the context of hemato-oncology and multiparametric flow cytometry, the classical expert-guided manual gating strategies based on bi-variate dot plots to identify aberrant and residual normal cell populations has become suboptimal in routine diagnosis.

In this webinar, Maria Arroz will address an alternative approach based on automated gating and classification algorithms.
