The majority of B cell nonHodgkin's lymphomas (NHLs) are composed of a genotypically identical cell population characterized by a unique immunoglobulin (Ig) VDJ gene rearrangement which is customarily documented by Southern blot hybridization analysis of fresh tissue. Sometimes, however, this approach cannot be used because of an insufficient quantity of tissue or the unavailability of fresh tissue. Therefore, alternative strategies should be designed in order to overcome these limitations.
