Antigen compatibility of Dissociation Kits. For many applications, including MACS Cell Separation, it is crucial to conserve the integrity of particular cell surface epitopes during tissue dissociation. The table shows which kits conserve which specific epitopes. Epitope sensitivities have been tested using Miltenyi Biotec's antibodies if available.

Detailed product information

Background information

In less than an hour, the gentle two-step enzymatic dissociation procedure efficiently yields high numbers of viable cells. The Neural Tissue Dissociation Kit (P) contains papain, and the Neural Tissue Dissociation Kit (T) contains trypsin.
Some antigen epitopes are damaged by papain, others by trypsin. The kit based on papain is best suited for use with Anti-Prominin-1 MicroBeads, CD11b (Microglia) MicroBeads and Anti-A2B5 MicroBeads, whereas, for example, Anti-GLAST (ACSA-1) MicroBead Kit and Anti-PSA-NCAM MicroBeads require the use of the trypsin-based kit.
Please see figure 1 for further information with regard to epitope sensitivity and kit selection.

Neural Tissue Dissociation Kit (P) (130-092-628)

I really enjoy using this kit to isolate neurons from mouse brain. The entire protocol is takes less than a couple hours and the instructions are easy to follow.

Neural Tissue Dissociation Kit (P) (130-092-628)

This kit works very well for embryonic and postnatal rat brain tissue ( day 1 to day 7 rat tested). Compared to traditional trypsin-based method, this kit yields more total cells as well as viable cells.

Neural Tissue Dissociation Kit (P) (130-092-628)

Our lab has developed different mouse models to study the efficacy of therapeutic candidates against HIV. One of the mouse lines we generated expresses human cell receptors which allows the cells to be infected with HIV. We use this mouse line to study HIV infection in the brain. We use this kit to process the brain tissue before we proceed to cell isolation.

Neural Tissue Dissociation Kit (P) (130-092-628)

We use this kit to dissociate mouse brain tissue to isolate microglia for in vitro experiments. The kit provides an excellent way to dissociate brain tissue to isolate cells of interest.
