Labeled and Unlabeled Monoclonals Offer Specificity, Convenience, Flexibility
Indianapolis, Ind. (Nov. 28, 2012) - Beckman Coulter Life Sciences is expanding their flow cytometry portfolio with the addition of 14 new human monoclonal antibodies from Trillium Diagnostics LLC. The analyte specific reagents (ASRs) provide high specificity, convenience and flexibility in flow cytometry. A new cell permeabilization reagent is also being offered.
The new monoclonals include human anti-hemoglobin F, which recognizes fetal hemoglobin molecules; CD163 markers for anti-inflammatory signal and disease research; and CD64 markers, which react with Fc gamma 1 receptors. Characterized, quality controlled, convenient, liquid reagents allow users to spend less time in sample preparation and more time on experiments.
Rounding out the line is a monoclonal for MNDA (myeloid nuclear differentiation antigen). All antibodies are available unconjugated or conjugated to a selection of fluorochromes. Intra-Cell concentrate for cell permeabilization is being released at this time as well.
Beckman Coulter Life Sciences offers an extensive line of human and non-human antibodies as well as a range of supporting reagents and immune monitoring products. The new antibodies are supplied in 1.0 mL of buffer, are ready to use and facilitate flexibility in experimental design.
"Convenience and specificity are important features for scientists," said Mario Koksch, vice president and general manager for Beckman Coulter Life Sciences' Flow Cytometry Business Unit. "These new antibodies are directed at important targets and will improve accuracy for researchers".
A strategic partnership between the companies enables Beckman Coulter Life Sciences to further diversify their extensive flow cytometry reagent portfolio and Trillium Diagnostics to broaden the reach of their products in the global market.
