hematagones vs ALL?

My approach, similar to that done by Cytometry Associates, is to recognize
presursor B cells or hematogones by their characteristic profile as
CD38++, CD10+, CD19+, sIg-, Fc receptor negative, CD20- or dim, and a cluster
often found southwest of lymhocytes on a CD45/log side scatter display.  I
find the CD10, CD38, CD45 combination particularly useful.  With this
approach you should have no problem distinquishing ALL from normal precusor
B cells down to a level of 2-3%.  For detection below 2%, I would feel better
knowing the original antigenic fingerprint of the ALL clone.
