8 tips to improve compensation in multicolor flow experiments

Multicolor flow cytometry is one of the most commonly used techniques for acquiring a large quantity of information on several cell subpopulations from a single sample. And a critical component of any multicolor flow experiment is compensation.

Is background signal from antibodies messing up your flow cytometry results?

Flow cytometry enables simultaneous multi-parameter analysis of single cells and has become one of the most powerful tools in biological research today. From analyzing cell size to characterizing cell types in a mixed cell population, flow cytometry helps address a wide variety of research questions.

REA196 – best CD56 antibody clone for flow cytometry

Conjugated to different fluorochromes, the recombinant engineered antibody REA196 is highly recommended to achieve reproducible and consistent CD56 expression data.

How to improve your flow cytometry panel design

Antibody panel design for flow cytometry could be described as an art. You walk the line of balancing epitope expression and fluorochrome brightness to build the most agreeable panel for your application of interest.

Magnetic separation of neural cells from the CNS

The ability to study individual cell populations is essential in understanding specific cellular and molecular processes in the central nervous system (CNS). A recently published paper in PLoS ONE highlights five benefits of magnetic cell separation for the isolation of neural cell populations.

Improve scientific reproducibility with recombinant antibodies

Recombinant reagents are highly standardized in their structure and performance leading to improved experimental reproducibility. Read more about how recombinant antibodies can enhance the quality of your research.

Neonatal Cardiomyocyte Isolation: A New Approach

Pure populations of primary cardiomyocytes have long been a powerful tool in cardiovascular research and now a non-classical methodology has emerged for walkaway dissociation of neonatal hearts in 1 hour.
