Use this kit to obtain up to 5-log enrichment of human epithelial tumor cells, directly from whole blood, bone marrow or PBMC. Tumor cell clumps can be enriched from bone marrow. Enriched cells are bead-free, viable and suitable for immunocytochemical staining or any other downstream application.
High enrichment of viable human tumor cells
• Isolate directly from whole blood, bone marrow or PBMC • Viable cells for any cellular applications
Methodology: Add CELLection™ Dynabeads™ to the sample. The beads will bind the tumor cells after a short incubation. The bead-bound tumor cells are quickly separated on a magnet and subsequently released from the beads with the supplied Release Buffer. (CELLection™ Dynabeads™ contains a DNA linker that is cleaved by the DNase I in the Release Buffer.)
Note: If you want to deplete or use the isolated tumor cells for molecular applications, please use the equivalent product Dynabeads™ Epithelial Enrich (Cat. No. 161-02). This product contains the same antibody, but with no release of the cells from the beads after positive isolation.
Starting Samples: Whole blood, bone marrow, buffy coat, PBMC.
