Cytek® 25-Color Immunoprofiling Assay, cFluor® Reagent Kit (18C)
The Cytek® 25-color immunoprofiling assay is designed and optimized by Cytek scientists to provide a turnkey solution for identifying major human immune subpopulations for T, B, NK cells, monocytes, dendritic cells, and basophils – all of which play important roles in the innate and adaptive immune response in various diseases.
To support the new 25-Color Immunoprofiling Assay, Cytek released an 18-color cFluor® reagents kit that can be used with seven reagents from other suppliers. The 25-color assay has been optimized and titrated for use with 7 Brilliant Violet™ reagents available from Biolegend® for analyzing human PBMC and whole blood on Cytek’s Aurora systems equipped with violet, blue, yellow-green, and red lasers.
Tested Dilution: 5 μL / test
Application: Flow Cytometry
Storage: 2-8°C and protected from Light. (Do not freeze)
Formulation: Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide and 0.2% BSA.
Validation Report: PDF
Cell gating for population identification using the Cytek® 25-Color Immunoprofiling Assay Kit. Cells are first gated on singlets, viable cells, CD45+, and lymphocytes or monocytes based on scatter. Lymphocytes are divided into T cells, non-T cells, B cells, and ILCs. Monocytes are characterized into phenotypes by expression of CD14 and CD16. Basophils are classified in viable cells.
Within the T lymphocyte population, CD4+, CD8+, and CD4-CD8- T cells can be quantified and further segregated into naïve, memory, effector, and terminal effector subsets.
Additionally, identification and characterization of dendritic cells, NK cells, γδ T cells, NKT-like cells, and regulatory T cells are achievable using the Cytek® 25-Color Immunoprofiling Assay Kit.
Cytek® 25-Color Immunoprofiling Assay, cFluor® Reagent Kit (18C) includes 18 cFluor reagents offered by Cytek
Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) or whole blood have been tested to validate the performance of this kit.
