Direct isolation of B and T cells for HLA crossmatch analysis

  • Cell isolation directly from blood or spleen in 20 min
  • Untouched isolation of B and T cells in parallel 
  • Excellent viability of target cells for reliable HLA analysis

MACSprep™ HLA Cell Isolation Kits allow the untouched isolation of human lymphocytes for optimal HLA crossmatch analysis. The fast and easy protocol allows direct cell isolation from anticoagulated whole blood or spleen cell suspensions in only 20 minutes, without any density gradient centrifugation or RBC lysis. Isolated target cells such as B, T, or B and T lymphocytes have high purity and viability, and are suited for CDC (complement dependent cytotoxicity) research.

MACSprep™ HLA Cell Isolation Kits allow the untouched isolation of human lymphocytes from anticoagulated whole blood or spleen.

Non-target cells are removed by immunomagnetic depletion while erythrocytes form a sediment, yielding viable untouched target cells of high purity and viability. 

Data

Reliable performance with MACSprep HLA Cell Isolation Kits. B and T cells (BT), B, or T cells were isolated from 20 different donors using the MACSprep HLA Cell Isolation Kits.
