Initiation of peripheral blood progenitor cell harvest based on peripheral blood hematopoietic progenitor cell counts enumerated by the Sysmex SE9000.

BACKGROUND The most reliable index for timing peripheral blood progenitor cell (PBPC) collection following mobilization is still to be determined. The techniques to enumerate peripheral blood (PB) CD34+ cells are expensive and time-consuming. The SE9000 (Sysmex) provides an estimate of immature cells, called hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs). The aim of… (More)
