B Cell PanelBlood
A B cell panel, also known as a B-cell screen or B cell subset analysis, is a laboratory test that measures and analyzes B cells (B lymphocytes) in the blood. B cells are a type of white blood cell that plays a crucial role in the immune system. They are responsible for producing antibodies that help the body fight infections and diseases.
The B cell panel is used to assess the quantity and function of B cells in the blood. It can provide valuable information for diagnosing and monitoring various medical conditions, including B-cell leukemia, lymphoma, immunodeficiency disorders, and autoimmune diseases. The test helps healthcare professionals understand how B cells are functioning and whether there are any abnormalities in their numbers or activity.
Different B cell panels may focus on specific aspects of B cell function, such as immunophenotyping, which identifies specific markers on B cells to characterize their subtype. Overall, a B cell panel is an essential tool in the diagnosis and management of conditions related to the immune system and hematological disorders, providing valuable insights into a patient's health.
Biomarkers included in this panel:
CD19+CD27+IgM+IgD+ refers to a specific subset of B cells characterized by the expression of the cell surface markers CD19, CD27, IgM, and IgD. These markers help categorize B cells into different subsets based on their developmental stage and functiLearn more
Naive B cells CD19+CD27-CD21-CD38- are a specific subset of B cells with distinct surface marker characteristics: CD19+: This marker indicates that these cells express the CD19 antigen, which is commonly found on B cells. CD27-: TheLearn more
