Product Details

Akadeum’s Mouse CD4+ T Cell Isolation Kit delivers a high-purity population of mouse CD4+ T cells that are ready for downstream use. Use of these microbubbles to enrich mouse splenocyte samples for CD4+ T cells prior to flow sorting can greatly reduce final sort times, helping to isolate more cells for better science. Akadeum’s microbubble workflow is exceptionally gentle on cells, helping to maintain the health and physiology of immune cells during enrichment.

Mechanism of Action: Akadeum’s Mouse CD4+ T Cell Isolation Kit uses a negative selection method to remove unwanted cell populations from the sample, effectively enriching for the CD4+ T cells of interest while maintaining cellular physiology. The undesired (non-CD4+ T) cells are labeled with Akadeum’s optimized cocktail of biotinylated antibodies targeting B220 (CD45R), CD8a, CD11b, CD11c, CD24, CD49b, Gr-1, TCR‑γδ ­and TER-119. Streptavidin-coated microbubbles are then mixed into the sample, binding to the labeled cells and floating them to the top of the sample container for removal.

How it Works: First, Akadeum’s biotinylated antibody cocktail is added to the sample to label the contaminating cells. Next, the microbubbles are mixed into the sample where the seek out and bind to the unwanted cells. Once bound, they quickly and gently float the undesired cells to the surface. An optional centrifugation step pellets the CD4+ T cells, and the microbubbles, microbubble-bound cells, and supernatant are easily aspirated away leaving the untouched and enriched CD4+ T cells happy, healthy, and ready for downstream use.

Key Features

Akadeum’s Mouse CD4+ T Cell Isolation Kit delivers a highly-enriched population of healthy, viable CD4+ T cells using our fast, easy, and gentle microbubble protocol. Ideal for enrichment of rare and delicate immune cells, Akadeum’s novel Buoyancy Activated Cell Separation (BACS™) technology retains precious cells during the enrichment process. Cell isolation occurs directly in the sample container, eliminating the need to expose rare and delicate cells to harsh chemicals or harmful shear forces. Because no additional equipment is required, cell loss is avoided and the health and physiology of CD4+ T cells is maintained. The end result is a highly-pure population of CD4+ T cells that are happy, healthy, and ready for downstream use.

Elevated Solutions for Sample Preparation:

  • Retain precious, rare cells and avoid cell loss
  • No magnet, no column, no additional equipment
  • Fast and easy workflow takes only 30 minutes
  • Highly enriched, viable mouse CD4+ T cells

Elegant in Simplicity, Powerful in Application

Akadeum’s microbubble technology harnesses the power of buoyancy in a fast, easy and gentle workflow without the need for additional equipment. This unique, gentle approach maintains cell health and physiology.


No magnet. No column. Happy cells.

We’ve taken technology that traditionally requires additional equipment to accomplish targeted cell separation and put it into a single container where it’s self-separating. No harmful shear forces, no exposure to external forces like magnetic gradients. Stop losing your precious cells to harsh, outdated processing techniques.

Experience the benefits of a microbubble workflow. Akadeum’s Microbubbles Are:

  • Magnet-free, protecting your cells from harsh magnetic forces and eliminating the need for additional (and expensive!) equipment
  • Column-free, using microbubbles directly in the sample vial to separate cells allows for quick and easy isolation of any sample, any volume, anywhere
  • Gentle on cells, harnessing the targeted efficiency of affinity molecules coupled with the power of buoyancy to gently separate via flotation
  • Reliable and consistent, delivering fast and easy results that can be scaled for larger volumes with workflows that are compatible with nearly any downstream processing

Fresh murine CD4+ T cells were isolated from a heterogenous splenocyte population using Akadeum Life Sciences Mouse CD4+ T Cell Isolation Kit (#12210-130). CD4+ T cells were labeled with CD3-FITC and CD4-APC/Fire 750. Dead cells and debris were excluded from analysis.
