Human Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cell Isolation and Viability Kit (ab234628)

Overview

  • Product name

    Human Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cell Isolation and Viability Kit
  • Sample type

    Whole Blood
  • Product overview

    Human Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cell Isolation and Viability Kit (ab234628) for PBMC Isolation is the first kit available to provide a complete set of components for the isolation of PBMCs from human blood and also allow visualization of viable cells. High yields of PBMCs (≥2.5 x106 cells/ml) have been obtained following this simple and time-saving protocol. By using the Viability Stain, it was proven that 99% of the cells are viable and the isolated fraction contains low red blood cell counts (≤ 3%).

  • Notes

    Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) are found in the peripheral blood circulating throughout the body and not sequestered in the lymphatic system, spleen, liver or bone marrow. PBMCs are composed of four cell types: T cells, B cells, Natural Killer cells and monocytes, each having a round nucleus. Applicable research areas include: stem cell research, evaluation of the immunotherapeutic potential of T or B cells and evaluation of inflammatory response orchestrated by cytokines and chemokines. Based on the unique density of each component, the whole blood is separated into plasma, PBMCs, density gradient media and red blood cells (RBCs).
