What is indirect magnetic labeling?

Indirect magnetic labeling is a two-step cell labeling method. In the first step, cells are labeled with a primary antibody specific for a particular cell surface molecule. The primary antibody can be fluorochrome-conjugated, biotinylated, or unconjugated. In the second step, the magnetic labeling is performed usingMACS MicroBeads that target the primary antibody. This can be done with Anti-Fluorochrome MicroBeads, Anti-BiotinMicroBeads, Streptavidin MicroBeads, or Anti-Isotype MicroBeads.
