Our Newest Offerings

Color Atlas of Flow Cytometry (PUB230)

This atlas offers 70+ cases, complete with images, photomicrographs, dot plots, and thorough discussions to help laboratory professionals identify difficult-to-diagnose disease categories.

“This new atlas is a useful resource for clinical flow cytometry laboratories, practicing hematopathologists, clinical immunologists, students, and trainees. It provides examples of the entire range of hematolymphoid diseases and contains a variety of challenging cases from actual CAP flow cytometry surveys, so users can see how other practitioners interpreted them, as well the scope and limitations of different antibody panels.” David M. Dorfman, MD, PhD, FCAP
