Monocyte Isolation Kit
, human

The CD16
+
Monocyte Isolation Kit has been developed for a two-step isolation of the CD14
+
CD16
+
monocyte subset from PBMCs.

Background information

Intermediate and non-classical monocytes together are referred to as CD16
+
monocytes
1
and account for about 5–10% of all blood monocytes. CD14
+
CD16
+
monocytes differ from CD14
+
CD16
-
monocytes with regard to phenotype and immunological function. CD16
+
monocytes are, for example, considered more mature and are believed to have a higher T cell stimulatory capacity than CD16
-
monocytes.

Detailed separation procedure

Isolation of CD16
+
monocytes is performed in a two-step procedure. Prior to separation, cells are incubated with FcR Blocking Reagent. Granulocytes and NK cells are then magnetically labeled with a cocktail of CD15 MicroBeads and CD56 MicroBeads, and depleted over a MACS Column. The flow-through in this first separation step contains pre-enriched, unlabeled CD16
+
monocytes. In the second separation step, CD16
+
monocytes are efficiently isolated by positive selection after labeling with CD16 MicroBeads.

Downstream applications

Isolated blood CD16
+
monocytes are suitable, for example, for investigations on CD16
+
monocyte maturation, migration, and differentiation, or for studies on antigen uptake, antigen processing and presentation to T cells.
