The COVID-19 pandemic is an ongoing global challenge. It is a mild to moderate respiratory tract infection in most people but can cause life-threatening respiratory failure or persistent debilitating symptoms...
Flow cytometry experiments can sometimes be challenging even for the most experienced scientists. Handy tips and tricks from experts are always useful and can provide answers during trying times in the laboratory. BD Biosciences, a leader in flow...
Abstract: The composition of the immune infiltrate in the human tumor microenvironment is a critical determinant of disease progression. Immunotherapies to treat cancer have achieved remarkable successes, but an inherent weakness of current treatment approaches is that the targeted immune subsets are not exclusive to tumors. In an effort to identify tumor-unique immune features that […]
What do you, the researcher, need the most today? How can you get to that big moment of discovery- that ‘ah-ha’ moment- that you spend so much time working for? Biology is a complex science. Today’s researchers require cutting-edge tools to dive deeper into elusive biological questions. Their need is for state-of-the-art technology to gain […]
Flow cytometry is serious science, but shouldn’t science be fun? Any scientist will tell you that the adventure of discovery and the thrill of experimentation make for a very exciting experience. We at BD Biosciences have always supported the playful side of science. So, we came up with a game that lets you choose your […]

Yu YR, Imrichova H, Wang H, et al. Disturbed mitochondrial dynamics in CD8+ TILs reinforce T cell exhaustion. Nat Immunol. 2020 Dec;21(12):1540-1551. doi: 10.1038/s41590-020-0793-3. The anti-tumor activity of Tumor-Infiltrating T Lymphocytes (TILs) can be attenuated by metabolic challenges present in tumors. The tumour microenvironment (TME) is home to many factors that impose restrictions on the anti-tumor […]

Why identifying antigen-specific epitopes and their cognate T-cell receptors is important In immunology, identifying antigen-specific epitopes and their cognate T-cell receptors can yield useful insights into the functioning of T-cells and can provide vital information for vaccine development. dCODE Dextramer® (RiO) reagents are DNA barcoded MHC Dextramer® products compatible with the BD RhapsodyTM Single-Cell Analysis System. Each […]
It has always been difficult to find the impossible, but what makes it so? To unravel the secrets of single-cells it is important to start the experiment with viable and live cells. The BD Multi-Omics workflow enables this using visual metrics, providing you with accurate information about cell counts and viability along the entire process. […]
Introduction Dendritic cells (DC) and monocytes, along with macrophages, constitute the Mononuclear Phagocyte System (MPS), which scans for and provides the first line of defence against invading pathogens. Some cells of the MPS internalise the invading pathogens. These cells are called Professional Antigen Presenting Cells (APC). Following the internalisation, these cells also play a key […]
