IVD CSF tubes (Cerebrospinal Fluid)

Analysis of white blood cell infiltration of Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) is important in the diagnosis of diseases including inflammatory neurologic diseases, acute and chronic leukaemia, myelodysplastic syndromes, lymphomas, myeloma, autoimmune diseases, immunodeficiencies and solid tumours. Flow cytometry is an important method for diagnosis, classification and monitoring of these diseases. However, cells within untreated CSF samples are typically low in number and degrade rapidly ex vivo, resulting in low sensitivity of disease detection.

Stabilisation of CSF with TransFix/EDTA CSF Sample Storage Tubes provides increased recovery of myeloid and lymphoid cells for up to 72 hours for analysis via flow cytometry, compared to untreated or cell culture medium treated CSF (1,2).

TransFix CSF Sample Tubes are CE marked for IVD use in Europe.
