High-parameter flow cytometry has been one of the primary drivers of cell biology research in recent times. However, cell analysers, specifically the BD FACSymphony™ A5 and A3, have developed faster...
In physiology, regulatory CD4+ T cells or Tregs, are responsible for maintaining immune homeostasis by inhibiting effector T cells, thereby preventing autoimmunity. Tregs do this in different ways, for example, by expressing cell-surface inhibitors, producing inhibitory cytokines, depletion...
The CoVID-19 pandemic is currently presenting one of the biggest challenges for the research community worldwide. With almost all of humanity touched by this tragedy, it has become imperative for scientists and researchers to study and understand important biological aspects of the CoVID-19 virus and its infections. In its quest to assist basic and translational […]
Chimeric Antigen Receptor T cell (CAR T cell) therapy has proven to be very promising for blood disorders and potentially, for solid tumors. In this approach, T cells taken from a patient or a donor are engineered to express a receptor on their surface, which allows them to target specific domains present on cancer cells. […]
BD is committed to providing educational resources in flow cytometry and Multi-Omics at all levels. To keep the skills of flow cytometrists up to date and enable researchers to acquire new ones, BD has put in place several online training resources. From the basics of flow cytometry to panel design tips and tricks, to courses […]
At BD, we have been working very hard to provide our customers with a very superior level of satisfaction. We have recently invested in a European manufacturing plant in Hungary, that ensures adequate stocks in Europe. Our BD OptiBuild™ assembled-to-order reagents enable you to choose several markers and a full range of BD Horizon™ Brilliant […]
tSNE or t-distributed stochastic neighbourhood embedding is a technique that uses algorithms to reduce N-dimensional data into two dimensions, while still retaining the structure and integrity of the data. The reduction of dimensionality provides greater insights into and enables better visualisation of multi-dimensional data. The algorithms work by randomly initialising positions for each data point […]
B-cell development is initiated in the fetal liver and neo-natal bone marrow and continues in the peripheral lymphoid organs upon exposure to antigens. The various stages of the development of B cells are associated with the several cell-surface markers that are regulated throughout the process. As with all differentiation processes associated with a large number […]
On December 31, 2019, the WHO China office was informed about cases of pneumonia of unknown etiology, emerging from Wuhan city in the Hubei province of China. Between December 31 and January 3, a further 44 cases of pneumonia of unknown etiology were reported to the WHO by Chinese authorities, who had still been unable […]
The journal Nature Methods has chosen single-cell multimodal omics as the Method of the Year 2019. This is a big acknowledgment of a new paradigm in cell biology research. Multimodal analysis enables the simultaneous measurement of multiple modalities or the integration of data from multiple experiments. For a long time now, the advantages of sequencing […]
FlowJo™, the leading analysis platform for single-cell flow cytometry analysis, and SeqGeq™, the platform for the analysis of gene expression from single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq), are now a lot easier to learn and use. FlowJo University is a collection of online educational resources, both introductory and advanced level, that has been specially put together to […]
BD Biosciences is proud to present a series of educational videos, aptly titled ‘Scientist to Scientist Educational Series’, featuring insightful advice by BD scientists on how to get better and more impactful flow cytometry data by designing the correct panel.
