Flow cytometry:

Flow cytometry is a laser-based technology to analyze the characteristics of cells with fluorescent labeled antibodies.. Immunophenotyping by flow cytometry is an important tool in the diagnosis and staging of patients with blood cancer. We are equipped with advanced 3 laser 10 colour flow cytometer, the first 10 colour instrument in Nepal for this purpose.

BCR-ABL quantification:

BCR -ABL 1 fusion transcript is a marker to test for the presence and amount of transcriptionally active Philadelphia-chromosome positive leukemia. Quantitative measurement of this is required for diagnosis of chronic myeloid leukemia ( CML) as well as prognosis of patient on treatment with TKI.. We offer a real-time RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction) test for monitoring of the p210 BCR-ABL translocation in peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) of patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML).

Thrombophilia work up:

If you are developing blood clots in veins before 50 years of age or have such a family history you are strong candidate for thrombophilia workup. We offer panel designed for initial work-ups to measure the most common causes that may increase your risk of thrombosis.
