Reagents, Immunoassay, Immunology, Cell Typing, Monoclonal Antibody, Monocyte
Definition : Immunology reagents including monoclonal antibodies that are used in immunologic tests which contribute in typing blood monocytes, a type of cell of the mononuclear phagocyte system of bone marrow origin, by identifying their antigens (e.g., CD13, CD14, CD33). Monocytes migrate from the blood into various tissues and transform in macrophages, thus the antigens of both types of cells are usually similar. These tests are used to differentiate among a heterogeneous group of neoplasms.
