cells were isolated by using the CD326 (EpCAM) MicroBeads, a MidiMACS Separator, and a LS Column. The cells were fluorescently stained with CD45-PE (# 130-102-596) and CD326 (EpCAM)-APC (# 130-102-234) and analyzed by flow cytometry using the MACSQuant Analyzer. Cell debris and dead cells were excluded from the analysis based on scatter signals and propidium iodide fluorescence.

Detailed product information

Background information

CD326, also known as epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM), is seen in the majority of carcinomas. It is expressed on cells of epithelial origin, epithelium-derived tumor cells
1
, circulating tumor cells, and cancer stem cells. Moreover , EpCAM is expressed on mouse embryonic stem cells and was described as a marker for the identification of successfully reprogrammed induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS)
2
.

Downstream applications

Tumor cells enriched by CD326 (EpCAM) MicroBeads can be cultured
3
and analyzed by immunocytochemistry
4
, flow cytometry, or molecular biology techniques, for example, RT-PCR
5
.
