On-Demand Course: Enhancing FISH Sensitivity

Register now to access a free virtual training course, Enhancing Sensitivity for Detection of Genetic Aberrations in Multiple Myeloma.

In this self-paced course, you’ll learn how to process bone marrow samples and isolate CD138+ plasma cells to increase sensitivity in FISH testing for multiple myeloma.

Topics covered:

  • An overview of how bone marrow samples are collected for diagnostic and prognostic testing in multiple myeloma and how the collection process can affect sensitivity of downstream FISH testing
  • A demonstration of how sensitivity in FISH testing for multiple myeloma can be improved by upstream isolation of CD138+ plasma cells
  • A summary of the bone marrow sample storage parameters affecting cell viability and CD138+ plasma isolation, and a detailed walkthrough on how to process bone marrow samples for optimal CD138+ plasma cell isolation
  • A step-by-step description of how to isolate CD138+ plasma cells via manual and automated isolation with the EasySep™ Human Whole Blood and Bone Marrow CD138 Positive Selection Kit II
This on-demand course is divided into 5 sessions, some with associated videos that illustrate how to perform the procedures discussed in the sessions. The sessions should be reviewed sequentially. The sessions range from approximately 15 - 20 minutes in duration and the entire course can be completed in approximately 2 hours. Note that this is not an accredited course and cannot be used to receive Continuing Education (CE) credits. If you wish to take an accredited course, please see our live virtual training.
