Human CD14+ Monocyte Enriched Leukopak Isolation Kit – GMP Grade

Categories: , , ,

With quality standards built into the design and manufacturing process at every step, use our Human CD14+ Monocyte Enriched Leukopak Isolation Kit – GMP to isolate high purity monocytes from elutriated leukapheresis material without the need for lysis or density gradient centrifugation.  Non-monocytes are targeted and removed with antibodies recognizing CD2, CD3, CD5, CD15, CD16, CD19, CD20, CD56, CD66b, CD123, and CD235ab via negative selection. Isolated monocytes are suitable for a wide variety of downstream assays, including differentiation, engineering, flow cytometry, and cell culture, or other functional studies. The Human CD14+ Monocyte Enriched Leukopak Isolation Kit – GMP offers a capacity to isolate CD14+ monocytes from up to 5 x 109 total cells.

  • GMP grade – Our GMP grade allows you to have peace of mind, with stringent documentation and processes, traceability, and strict adherence to standards.
  • Higher Purity– Delivers a high purity population of human CD14+ monocytes that are healthy and ready for downstream use.
  • Shorter processing time – From leukopak bag to purified monocytes in under an hour enables greater productivity, adding flexibility to your day.
  • No dedicated equipment, no magnets, or columns – Only general tools and equipment are needed for our quick and easy workflow.

Product Details

The Human CD14+ Monocyte Enriched Leukopak Isolation Kit – GMP streamlines CD14+ monocyte isolations by eliminating the need for excess equipment and time-consuming sample preparation (i.e., Ficoll gradients or lysis)—providing more time to spend focusing on other things that matter. By eliminating the need for pre-processing, the Human CD14+ Monocyte Enriched Leukopak Isolation Kit – GMP minimizes handling steps and consistently delivers more isolated monocytes. Get the most out of your time and material with the Human CD14+ Monocyte Enriched Leukopak Isolation Kit – GMP.

Mechanism of Action: Leukopak samples contain a milieu of immune cells (i.e., white blood cells), plasma, platelets, and red blood cells. The Human CD14+ Monocyte Enriched Leukopak Isolation Kit – GMP uses a negative selection method to enrich monocytes by removing unwanted cell populations. These unwanted cells are labeled with biotin-CD2, CD3, CD5, CD15, CD16, CD19, CD20, CD56, CD66b, CD123, and CD235ab. BACS™ Streptavidin Microbubbles are mixed into the sample where they bind to the labeled cells and gently float them to the surface. Isolated are subsequently harvested.

How it Works: A biotin-antibody cocktail is mixed with the leukapheresis material to label unwanted cell populations. BACS™ Streptavidin Microbubbles are added and bind to the biotin-labeled cells. Due to their inherent buoyancy, the microbubbles quickly and gently float the non-monocytes to the surface. Following centrifugation, the monocytes are collected.

Key Features

The Human CD14+ Monocyte Enriched Leukopak Isolation Kit – GMP is designed to enrich monocytes from leukopaks. Akadeum’s novel Microbubbles enable processing, limiting the unnecessary loss of cells. The CD14+ monocyte isolation protocol is fast and gentle on cells, taking just one hour and not requiring upfront processing or magnets or columns. The result is a population of highly pure monocytes that are ready for downstream use.

Elevated Solutions for Sample Preparation

  • Ficoll- and lysis-free cell separation for the isolation of high purity
  • Fast and easy workflow; leukopak bag to cells in under 60 min.
  • Maximum yield of monocytes without compromising on purity.

Elegant in Simplicity, Powerful in Application

BACS™ Microbubble technology harnesses the power flotation to streamline your cell therapy workflow. Our novel technology couples performance, ease, and quality, bringing a new dimension to your cell culture.

Experience the Benefits of a Microbubble Workflow. Akadeum’s Microbubbles Are:

  • Gentle on cells: Harnessing the power of buoyancy, BACSTM Microbubbles swiftly and gently remove unwanted cells via flotation.
  • Fast, reliable, and scalable: The simple BACSTM Microbubbles protocol delivers reproducible results that can be easily scaled for greater numbers of cells or larger volumes.
  • Equipment-free: Free yourself from worrying about maintaining magnets, losing cells to clogged columns, or sacrificing space in the biosafety hood.
