    The Precursor Cell Marker test, commonly called the CD34 panel test, determines the level of CD34 marker in your blood. The test can be prescribed to check your viability as a bone marrow donor. The CD34 is an important antigen that features heavily during bone marrow transformations.

    Usually, the CD34 panel test is done in combination with other tests to confirm whether your Human Leukocyte Antigens (HLAs) markers are a good match with that of the recipient. The HLAs are proteins, or markers, found on most cells in the human body. Through these markers, the immune system can recognise which cells belong to your body and which do not. In the end, if the donor’s HLA is similar to the recipient’s, the latter’s immune system will not reject the bone marrow.

    Furthermore, the CD34 test is helpful in assessing the overall health of your immune system. You may be asked to undergo a CD34 panel test if you experience any of the following symptoms:

    • Fatigue
    • Dizziness
    • Dry Mouth
    • Chills
    • Cramps
    • Joint Pain

    If these symptoms persist for more than a few days, they may indicate a medical issue. In this case, it is advisable to consult your physician. You physician will likely recommend a Precursor Cell Marker test to gauge your immune system’s health.

    The procedure for the CD34 test is similar to that of a standard blood test. So, this test does not require any special preparation. But it is advisable to inform your doctor about any medications you take so that they can determine if the same will impact your test results.

    During the CD34 test, the phlebotomist (person drawing the blood) uses a needle to draw blood from the vein in your arm, usually at the bend of the elbow. This blood is carefully collected in a tube and further sent for analysis.

    You should note that the Precursor Cell Marker test is an early screening and diagnostic test through which doctors cannot make a definite conclusion. If the count of CD34 cells in your body is low, it may indicate some serious health complications. The doctor may suggest some additional tests as a follow-up to ascertain the underlying health issue.

    With Apollo 24|7, you can choose to take the CD34 lab test near your home. The results of the tests are delivered quickly, allowing you to consult your doctor and prepare a treatment plan before the underlying health condition increases in severity.

    Frequently asked questions

    The short answer is NO. This is because the recipient’s immune system may reject these cells. This may worsen the condition of the patient’s condition and increase the risk of life-threatening complications. A CD34 test can help you determine the compatibility of your cells with the patient.
    The CD34 cells are most commonly found in the blood, bone marrow and umbilical cord but are not limited to these tissues. They can also be found in muscle satellite cells, keratocytes, and interstitial cells.
    Since the Precursor Cell Marker test involves drawing blood, there are little to no side effects involved. At most, you might encounter slight bruising at the spot from where the phlebotomist draws blood. But this bruising will go away soon without the need for any medication.
    Yes, the CD34 test is diagnostic in nature and it determines if persistent symptoms like fatigue, dry mouth, and chills are due to an issue with the immune function. If the results of the CD34 test are negative, the doctor may recommend further tests to determine the underlying health issue.
