MACS Whole Blood MicroBeads allow magnetic cell sorting directly from whole blood or bone marrow. Leukocyte subsets are purified by using the autoMACS Pro Separator or the Whole Blood Column Kit with 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, such as lineage-specific chimerism analysis, and functional studies.
