Intended as an aid in the diagnosis of multiple myeloma and other plasma cell disorders




The BD OneFlow™ PCD Tube is part of the innovative BD OneFlow™ Solution, a comprehensive set of reagents, setup beads, protocols and assay templates to reproducibly set up the flow cytometer and stain, acquire and analyze patient specimens for immunophenotyping of normal and aberrant cell populations. It is built on the research and validation work of the EuroFlow™ Consortium on the characterization of hematological malignancies for improved accurate diagnosis.1


The BD OneFlow™ PCD Tube, when run in parallel with the BD OneFlow™ Plasma Cell Screening Tube (PCST), is intended for flow cytometric immunophenotyping of normal and aberrant plasma cells in bone marrow as an aid in the diagnosis of multiple myeloma or other plasma cell disorders.


Other reagents belonging to the BD OneFlow™ Solution are BD OneFlow™ B-cell Chronic Lymphoproliferative Diseases Tube 1 (B-CLPD T1), BD OneFlow™ Plasma Cell Screening Tube (PCST), BD OneFlow™ Plasma Cell Disorders (PCD) Tube and BD OneFlow™ Acute Leukemia Orientation Tube (ALOT).
