I recently came across the article published in the AM J Pathol (1998,
152:1655-1665) by Ocqueteau et al regarding the immunophenotype of plasma
cells from monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance.  The
following questions are for those of you that work in a clinical setting.

Do you receive requests for typing (by flow cytometry) plasma cells in bone
marrow  of patients with MGUS?
Do you offer the service?
If so what protocol do you fallow?

I will greatly appreciate your assistance.
