The harvest material should preferably contain minimal or no contaminating residual disease.

Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Harvests

In general follow the above advice for bone marrow harvests. Bone marrow examination is essential if cytopenias are present.

Note: Consider flow cytometry and cytogenetics in all patients who have a bone marrow performed in these circumstances.

Note: If red cells are required two weeks prior to or during harvest they must be irradiated. Two units of blood must be cross-matched prior to a marrow harvest and be irradiated.
