Roxanne - depends too on whether you will be doing direct
immunofluorescence for them as well. I imagine a busy derm practice
would require the capability of doing them. Therefore, FITC-conjugated
IgG, IgA, IgM, C3 and Fibrinogen might be useful. (Disclaimer: this
panel may have changed since I left clinical.)
Also, you may have to have the leukemia/lymphoma markers on hand because
cutaneous lymphomas are usually biopsied by Dermatologists. Talk with
your pathologist as to the panel he/she might recommend for typing
Hope this helps!
