Under inadequate conditions PCs may lose CD138 expression and rapidly enter apoptosis) (21,22). However, if required, storage for longer periods should be performed at lower temperatures (≈2–8°C). In the case of samples aged longer than recommended or any specimens showing evidence of freezing, hemolysis, or clotting, cell viability should be assessed prior to phenotypic studies. The criteria for rejection of sample based on suboptimal conditions that may preclude successful analysis may vary, depending on the specific goals of the immunophenotypic studies.
