Would preserved cells for flow cytometry make your life easier? - (Aug/03/2014 )
1. Imagine not having to euthanize a mouse or rat each time you needed a few million splenocytes as control cells.
2. Imagine not having to wait for collection of human whole blood from a donor, then isolate PBMCs by Ficoll etc., so that you can include a set of control cells in your flow cytometry experiment.
3. Imagine not having to buy expensive frozen cells and having to strore them in ultra-low temperature freezer/liquid nitrogen.
4. Imagine not having to thaw frozen cells each time you needed to stain them for FACS analysis.
Cells Depot™ preserved cells are derived from human, mouse and rat cells with intended use in flow cytometry applications (For Research Use Only). The cells are non-viable and stain optimally with low antibody concentrations. They can be used to validate antibody binding, serve as control for cell subset evaluation or used for multi-color compensation. Cells Depot™ preserved cells remain stable and unfrozen when stored in a regular freezer (-18C to -21C). Since thawing is not required, sampling is quick and repeat sampling is easy resulting in greater efficiency and savings in cost.
