Immunophenotyping by Flow Cytometry Double Negative T Cells (DNT) Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure available at DNA Labs UAE, aimed at identifying and quantifying double negative T cells (DNTs) in a patient’s blood. These cells are a subset of T lymphocytes that lack the typical CD4 and CD8 surface markers, hence the term “double negative.” The presence and proportion of DNTs can provide critical insights into various immune system disorders, including autoimmune diseases, immunodeficiency, and certain malignancies.

The test utilizes flow cytometry, a sophisticated technology that allows for the detailed analysis of the physical and chemical characteristics of cells in a fluid as they pass through a laser beam. This method is highly sensitive and specific for detecting DNTs among the myriad of cells in the human blood, making it an invaluable tool in the diagnosis and monitoring of related health conditions.

At DNA Labs UAE, the Immunophenotyping by Flow Cytometry DNT Test is priced at 940 AED. The cost reflects the intricate nature of the technology and the expertise required to accurately interpret the results. Patients opting for this test can expect a thorough analysis, providing essential data to guide their healthcare providers in making informed treatment decisions.

IMMUNOPHENOTYPING BY FLOW CYTOMETRY DOUBLE NEGATIVE T CELLS DNT Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the IMMUNOPHENOTYPING BY FLOW CYTOMETRY DOUBLE NEGATIVE T CELLS DNT Test to analyze and characterize different cell populations based on their surface markers. This test is commonly used in the diagnosis of autoimmune disorders.

Test Details

The IMMUNOPHENOTYPING BY FLOW CYTOMETRY DOUBLE NEGATIVE T CELLS DNT Test is performed using flow cytometry, a technique that allows us to analyze cells based on their fluorescence intensity and pattern. Specifically, this test focuses on Double Negative T cells (DNT), a subset of T cells that lack the expression of both CD4 and CD8 co-receptors on their surface.

Test Components

The cost of the IMMUNOPHENOTYPING BY FLOW CYTOMETRY DOUBLE NEGATIVE T CELLS DNT Test is AED 940.0. The test requires a sample condition of 3 mL (2 mL min.) whole blood in 1 Lavender Top (EDTA) tube and 3 mL (2 mL min.) whole blood in 1 Green Top (Sodium Heparin) tube. The samples should be shipped immediately at 18-22°C and should not be refrigerated or frozen. Please specify the time, date, and clinical details on the test request form.

Understanding the Test

Immunophenotyping by flow cytometry is a technique used to analyze and characterize different cell populations based on their surface markers. In the case of the IMMUNOPHENOTYPING BY FLOW CYTOMETRY DOUBLE NEGATIVE T CELLS DNT Test, the focus is on Double Negative T cells (DNT) that lack the expression of both CD4 and CD8 co-receptors on their surface.

The test involves the following steps:

  1. Sample preparation: Blood or tissue samples containing T cells are collected from the patient or experimental model. The cells are then isolated using appropriate techniques such as density gradient centrifugation.
  2. Antibody staining: The isolated T cells are incubated with a panel of fluorescently labeled antibodies specific to various cell surface markers. In the case of DNT cells, the panel may include antibodies against CD3, CD4, and CD8.
  3. Flow cytometry analysis: The stained cells are passed through a flow cytometer, which detects and measures the fluorescence emitted by each individual cell as it passes through the laser beam. The flow cytometer can distinguish different cell populations based on their fluorescence intensity and pattern.
  4. Data analysis: The flow cytometry data is analyzed using specialized software to identify and quantify the different cell populations. In the case of DNT cells, the analysis would focus on identifying the CD3+CD4-CD8- population.

Immunophenotyping of DNT cells can provide valuable information about the immune system and its response to various diseases and conditions. For example, an increased presence of DNT cells has been observed in autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), suggesting their potential role in the pathogenesis of these conditions.

It is important to note that the specific antibody panel and analysis parameters may vary depending on the research or diagnostic goals of the study. Additionally, immunophenotyping can be performed on other cell types as well, not just DNT cells.

Test Details

Immunophenotyping by flow cytometry is a technique used to analyze and characterize different cell populations based on their surface markers. One specific cell population that can be analyzed using this technique is Double Negative T cells (DNT).

Double Negative T cells refer to a subset of T cells that lack the expression of both CD4 and CD8 co-receptors on their surface. These cells are also known as CD4-CD8- T cells or DN T cells.

To perform an immunophenotyping analysis of DNT cells, the following steps are typically followed:

1. Sample preparation: Blood or tissue samples containing T cells are collected from the patient or experimental model. The cells are then isolated using appropriate techniques such as density gradient centrifugation.

2. Antibody staining: The isolated T cells are incubated with a panel of fluorescently labeled antibodies specific to various cell surface markers. In the case of DNT cells, the panel may include antibodies against CD3, CD4, and CD8.

3. Flow cytometry analysis: The stained cells are passed through a flow cytometer, which detects and measures the fluorescence emitted by each individual cell as it passes through the laser beam. The flow cytometer can distinguish different cell populations based on their fluorescence intensity and pattern.

4. Data analysis: The flow cytometry data is analyzed using specialized software to identify and quantify the different cell populations. In the case of DNT cells, the analysis would focus on identifying the CD3+CD4-CD8- population.

For example, an increased presence of DNT cells has been observed in autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), suggesting their potential role in the pathogenesis of these conditions.

It is important to note that the specific antibody panel and analysis parameters may vary depending on the research or diagnostic goals of the study. Additionally, immunophenotyping can be performed on other cell types as well, not just DNT cells.
