Human B Cell Isolation Kit


The Human B Cell Isolation Kit was developed with BACS Microbubbles for the enrichment of untouched human B cells. Unwanted cells are depleted through negative selection.

  • This kit can process up to 1 billion MNCs.
  • Fast & easy workflow enriches human mononuclear cells (MNCs) for B cells in 30 minutes
  • No magnet, no column, no harsh chemicals
  • Microbubble enrichment maintains cell health and physiology

Product Details

The Human B Cell Isolation Kit delivers a high purity population of human B cells that is ready for downstream use. The BACS™ Microbubble workflow is exceptionally gentle on cells, helping to maintain the health and physiology of immune cells during enrichment.

Mechanism of Action: The Human B Cell Isolation Kit uses a negative selection method to remove unwanted cell populations and effectively enrich B cells. Non-B cells are labeled with an optimized cocktail of biotinylated antibodies targeting CD2, CD3, CD14, CD15, CD16, CD36, CD43, CD56, CD57, CD123, CD161, CD235ab, and CD314.

How it Works: The biotinylated antibody cocktail is added to the sample to label unwanted cells. BACS™ Microbubbles are added to the sample and bind to the antibody-labeled cells. Microbubbles bound to the undesired cells, quickly and gently float the undesired cells to the surface. B cells, the cells of interest, are pelleted through centrifugation. Microbubble-bound cells and supernatant are easily aspirated away, leaving untouched and enriched B cells healthy and ready for downstream use.

Key Features

The Human B Cell Isolation Kit leverages Akadeum’s novel Buoyancy Activated Cell Separation (BACS™) technology to deliver a highly enriched population of healthy, viable B cells. BACS™ Microbubbles are fast, easy-to-use, and gentle on cells. The BACS™ Microbubble isolation platform minimizes handling by enabling single-tube processing which limits unnecessarily losing cells. The B cell isolation protocol is fast and simple, taking just 30 minutes and not requiring magnets or columns. The result is a population of highly pure human B cells that are healthy and ready for downstream use.

Elevated Solutions for Sample Preparation

  • Exceptionally gentle B cell enrichment
  • Fast and easy workflow; complete in ~30 minutes
  • Single tube processing that minimizes sample handling and loss of target cells

Elegant in Simplicity, Powerful in Application

BACS™ Microbubble technology harnesses the power of buoyancy to provide a fast, easy, and gentle cell isolation.  Our novel technology couples performance, ease, and quality, bringing cell separation to the next level.

Experience the benefits of a Microbubble workflow. Akadeum’s Microbubbles are:

  • Magnet-free: Cells are not subjected to harsh magnetic forces.
  • Column-free: BACS™ workflow is easy-to-use and does not require onerous and expensive columns.
  • Gentle on cells: Harnessing the power of buoyancy, BACS™ Microbubbles swiftly and gently remove unwanted cells via flotation.
  • Fast, reliable, and scalable: The simple BACS™ Microbubbles protocol delivers reproducible results and can be easily scaled for larger volumes.

Untouched B cells were isolated from MNCs using the Human B Cell Isolation Kit (13210-110). Isolated cells were labeled with CD3-FITC and CD19-APC/Fire750. The fluorescently labeled cells were analyzed by flow cytometry. Debris and dead cells were excluded from analysis. Human B Cell Flow Plots
