Immunology Diagnostic Laboratory: A Jeffrey Modell Foundation Diagnostic Center
The Immunology Diagnostic Laboratory (IDL), a CLIA-approved reference lab and Jeffrey Modell Foundation Diagnostic Center, performs state-of-the-art genetic testing, flow cytometry and cellular immunology studies to diagnose immunologic disorders.
The IDL monitors immune function in patients with suspected or diagnosed primary immune deficiency; patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell or solid organ transplantation; and patients treated with immune-modulating drugs.
Testing presently available includes 8-to-12-color multiparameter immunophenotyping of regulatory T cells; expression analysis of key intracellular proteins; functional testing of intracellular signaling pathways; and genetic testing for immunodeficiency disease. Development of new and innovative testing approaches to evaluate human immunity is a key focus of the IDL.
