MACSprep™ PBMC Isolation Kit, human from Miltenyi Biotec

BERGISCH GLADBACH, June 14, 2017 – The new MACSprep™ PBMC Isolation Kit, human from Miltenyi Biotec allows the preparation of highly pure peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from human whole blood without density gradient centrifugation in only 25 min. The kit is ideal for the processing of small blood samples.  

Miltenyi Biotec has developed the MACSprep PBMC Isolation Kit, human for the straightforward isolation of PBMCs from 2–10 mL human whole blood without density gradient centrifugation.

Your advantages with the new MACSprep PBMC Isolation Kit, human are:

  • Fast and easy PBMC preparation from whole blood in only 25 min
  • No density gradient centrifugation needed
  • Ready-to-use for up to 10 mL whole blood samples

  • The isolation can be easily performed in a two-step separation procedure: During the first isolation step erythrocytes are aggregated and sedimented. In a second step, non-PBMCs are depleted based on MACS® Technology, resulting in highly pure PBMCs ready to be used for downstream experiments. Fields of application include PBMC co-cultures for functional immune cell assays, studies on cytokine expression of immune cells upon restimulation, studies on signal transduction during activation of immune cells and immune monitoring of antigen-specific T cells, for example.
