- C-myc DNA Amplification
Juxtaposition of this chromosome with a heavy chain immunoglobulin occurs frequently in Burkitt lymphoma and other B-cell lymphomas, as well as breast cancer and acute lymphoblalstic leukemia.
- bcl-2 Oncogene Analysis
Diagnostic method to differentiate B-cell and follicular types of lymphomas
- Beta-2M (ß-2 Microglobulin)
Elevated levels present in lymphoproliferative disorders
- TDT (Terminal-Deoxynucleotidal Transferase)
Differentiates lymphoblastic lymphomas from other non-Hodgkin lymphomas
