The Mouse B Cell Isolation Kit delivers a high purity population of murine B cells that are ready for downstream use. The BACS™ Microbubble workflow is exceptionally gentle on cells, helping to maintain the health and physiology of B cells during enrichment.
Mechanism of Action: The Mouse B Cell Isolation Kit uses a negative selection method to remove unwanted cell populations and effectively enrich B Cells. Unwanted cells are labeled with an optimized cocktail of biotinylated antibodies targeting CD3, CD4, CD8a, CD11b, CD11c, CD49b, CD90.2, CD105, Gr1, Ter119.
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.

The Mouse B Cell Isolation Kit leverages Akadeum’s novel Buoyancy Activated Cell Sorting (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, limiting unnecessarily loss of 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 B cells that are healthy and ready for downstream use.

Untouched B cells were isolated from splenocytes using the Mouse B Cell Isolation Kit (12210-110). Isolated cells were labeled with CD3-APC and CD19-FITC. The fluorescently labeled cells were analyzed by flow cytometry. Debris and dead cells were excluded from analysis.
Workflow in Use: Mouse B Cell Isolation
The Mouse B Cell Isolation Kit allows researchers to obtain highly-enriched, high-quality B cells using our exceptionally gentle workflow that does not sacrifice purity for quality. Akadeum’s negative selection process maintains cell health and physiology, and the isolated cells retain their activation and differentiation potential. The microbubble isolation process does not disturb B Cell Receptors (BCRs) or skew the isolated population.
