Reagents, Immunoassay, Immunology, Cell Typing, Monoclonal Antibody, Macrophage
Definition : Immunology reagents including monoclonal antibodies that are used in immunologic tests which contribute in typing macrophages, a type of cell of the mononuclear phagocyte system of bone marrow origin, by identifying their antigens (e.g., CD13, CD14, CD15, CD33). Macrophages are the result of the migration of the monocytes from the blood into various tissues, thus the antigens of both types of cells are similar. These tests are used to differentiate among a heterogeneous group of neoplasm.
