StraightFrom™ MicroBeads allow magnetic cell separation directly from sources such as whole blood, bone marrow, and buffy coat. Leukocyte subsets are purified using the autoMACS® Pro Separator
, the MultiMACS™ Cell24 Separator Plus
or manual separators
. Pre-enrichment of white blood cells, e.g. by density gradient centrifugation, is not required. The purified cells are well-suited for further flow cytometric analysis, molecular biology studies, and functional studies.
