Individual and a series of IHC markers can be run on unknown cells and presence or absence of the antigen can help to characterize the cell of interest. CD138 is a protein present on plasma cells in the bone marrow, and on certain epithelial cells. The protein is useful to diagnose any neoplasms (tumors) growing in plasma cells.
