Twenty cases of non-Hodgkin's malignant lymphoma were examined using both flow cytometry (FCM) and static cytometry (SCM) DNA analysis to detect aneuploidic cell populations. FCM was performed on fresh cell suspensions whilst SCM was performed retrospectively on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded samples of the same tissue. A total of 34 aneuploidic cell lines were detected by FCM compared to a total of 41 detected by SCM. Of the 20 cases 14 showed DNA indexes within 10% of each other for each method, indicating a reasonable degree of comparability between the two methods. Of the 6 cases which did not show comparable DNA indexes, 2 displayed similar cell lines for both methods, but the major abnormal cell populations were of different ploidy by SCM as compared to FCM. A qualitative comparison is thus possible between these two cases. The results suggest that retrospectively applied SCM ploidy analysis of lymphoid tissue is comparable to FCM on fresh tissue samples and can thus be used in retrospective studies of both prognostic and diagnostic significance.
