StraightFrom
®
Whole Blood CD56 MicroBeads were developed for the rapid positive selection of CD56
+
cells directly from whole blood or bone marrow, minimizing hands-on time and maximizing yield of target cells. No sample preparation is required, including density gradient centrifugation or erythrocyte lysis.
StraightFrom Whole Blood MicroBeads in combination with the autoMACS
®
Pro Separator allow standardization of the cell separation procedure and safe handling of hazardous samples.

Detailed product information

Background information

The CD56 antigen is expressed by most NK cells and a small subset of T cells. Upon activation of NK cells, the surface expression of CD56 is increased.

Detailed separation procedure

Anticoagulated cell samples of 0.25–15 mL are labeled with StraightFrom
®
Whole Blood CD56 MicroBeads to be subsequently separated with the autoMACS
®
Pro Separator, the MultiMACS™ Cell24 Separator Plus, or using the Whole Blood Column Kit.

Downstream applications

CD56
