Leukocyte Cytochemistry/ Cytochemistry, Leukocyte.
Indications : Test evaluate neoplasm and abnormal cells in bone marrow, peripheral blood, or other specimens such as imprints, detect amylodois, classify leukemias and plasma cell dyscrasias, and evaluate myeloproliferative disorders.
Interpretation : For each type of leukemic blast a consistent and distinctive pattern of non specific esterases activity has been reported. Isoenzyme fractions of acid phosphatases and nonspecific esterases appear to be unique for lymphoblasts, myeloblasts, and immature or leukemic monocytes.
