The Immunology Diagnostic Laboratory (IDL), a CLIA-approved reference lab and Jeffrey Modell Diagnostics Center, performs state-of-the-art genetic testing, flow cytometry and cellular immunology studies to diagnose immunologic disorders.
The IDL also monitors immune function in patients with primary immune deficiency diseases and in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell or solid organ transplantation. Testing presently available includes 8-12-color multiparameter immunophenotyping for naïve and memory B cells and CD4 and CD8 T cells, as well as expression analysis for key intracellular proteins. Ongoing work also supports the development of new tests based on our center's research.
We can assess not only whether there's a gene mutation – we can also determine whether the protein is expressed and, in many cases, whether or not it is functional.
