BD Scientific Support – Helping BD customers do better science.

Interview

Interview with Vesna Melkebeek, Ph.D. Tell us about your scientific background and your work. I have a Ph.D. in Veterinary Immunology and worked as a postdoc for several years before joining BD. During my academic career, I was mainly studying the impact of different vaccination strategies and immunomodulatory adjuvants on the intestinal mucosal immune system in animals using flow cytometry, cell sorting and imaging. In that period, I developed a strong interest in immunology. I joined the BD […]

Immunophenotyping of human dendritic cell population

News & innovations

Dendritic cells (DCs) play an important role in innate and acquired immunity. They are the antigen-presenting cells that prime naive T cells and elicit memory T cell responses to foreign antigens.  DC subsets can be classified into three types. These are plasmacytoid DC (pDC), myeloid/conventional DC1 (cDC1) and myeloid/conventional DC2 (cDC2). This application note describes […]

Delineation of functional Treg subsets using cell surface marker expression

News & innovations, Training and education

Regulatory T cells or Tregs are CD4 T cells that are essential for maintaining peripheral tolerance, preventing autoimmunity and limiting chronic inflammatory diseases. Naturally occurring Tregs were first characterized within the CD4+CD25+ T cell populations. Tregs express the transcription factor Foxp3, which is essential for their function. Over the years, specific Treg subsets have been […]

Making the most out of the ultraviolet laser: How BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet Dyes drive discovery

News & Event

At the beginning of the new millennium, researchers had reached a plateau in the number of parameters that could be analysed in a flow cytometry experiment. This was due to the limited number of fluorochromes available and the overlaps that occurred in their excitation spectra with the available lasers. Then the Nobel Prize-winning discovery of […]

Heavy science: Expression of CD107a in a mouse model of obesity studied by the BD FACSymphony™ A5 Cell Analyzer and the BD Horizon™ Red 718 reagent

Scientific Publication

In this application note, a study is presented that details a stepwise approach towards the intracellular staining and assessment of various immune cell types in a mouse model of obesity. Obesity can create an inflammatory environment that may lead to the production of exhausted T cell phenotypes. The loss of T cell effector function associated […]
