Flowcytometry - CD138

Flowcytometry - CD138

Flow cytometry, utilizing lasers, measures cell attributes, such as protein expression, with precision. This method examines individual cells within a larger group, ensuring accuracy and reliability. One variant, involving the CD138 marker, is pivotal in hematology and oncology diagnostics.

CD138, or syndecan-1, marks specific cell surfaces, notably plasma cells responsible for antibody production during infections. The CD138 flow cytometry test is essential in diagnosing and monitoring plasma cell disorders, notably multiple myeloma, a form of bone marrow cancer. This test's application demonstrates the flow cytometry principle, allowing detailed analysis crucial in medical diagnostics.
