Heme/Onc Testing:

Multiple Myeloma (MM)

downloadtrf.png
  • Multiple Myeloma (MM) is a disease of the plasma cells, which comprise only 2-3% of cells in healthy blood.

  • To increase the concentration of plasma cells in our myeloma FISH studies, we use a CD138+ selection protocol to isolate the target cells and identify genetic changes.

  • IGH rearrangement is a common finding in MM FISH studies — KSL Diagnostics' IGH reflex panel for IgH rearrangement study looks for the IGH partner gene to identify which chromosomes have translocated and help drive treatment decisions.
