Bone Marrow & Leukemic Blood Chromosome Analysis

Bone marrow and leukemic blood samples that contain spontaneously dividing cells usually are cultured short-term without mitogens. Some specimens with B-cell conditions are stimulated with mitogens. Chromosome analysis of the dividing cells is useful in the diagnosis and classification of hematological malignancies.
