Background Lymph node (LN), peripheral blood (PB), and bone marrow (BM) samples are commonly analyzed by flow cytometry (FC) for the immunophenotyping and staging of canine lymphomas. A prognostic value for FC BM infiltration in dogs with large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL) was demonstrated. Aim of this study was to define the analytical performances of this technique, and to establish a cutoff suitable to safely discriminate between infiltrated and noninfiltrated PB and BM samples. Methods Large B-cells were added to control PB and BM samples, to achieve twelve different large B-cells concentrations, ranging from 0 to 50%. The percentage of large B-cells was recorded for each dilution, using a BD Accuri C6 FC. Accuracy was evaluated by Passing-Bablok regression analysis. Intra-assay precision was assessed at 0%, 1, 3, and 10% dilutions evaluating the CVs of 10 repeated acquisitions. ROC curves were drawn to identify the cutoffs most suitable to discriminate between 25 infiltrated (PARR-positive) and 25 noninfiltrated (PARR-negative) PB and BM samples, respectively. Results Optimal analytical accuracy and precision were achieved. Almost all CVs were <10%. Negative controls had up to 0.5% large B-cells, with 50 and 22% CV in PB and BM samples, respectively, 0.56 and 2.45% cutoffs were selected based on the ROC curves for PB and BM samples, respectively. Conclusions Quantification of large B-cells in PB and BM samples by FC is reliable and analytical performances met the acceptance criteria. Assessment of performances of different instruments and protocols is warranted.
