SKP2 mediated BECN1 ubiquitination, its role in autophagy, and how its inhibition reduces MERS-Coronavirus replication Autophagy is an important mechanism used by host cells to counter viral infections. In...
In recent times, developments in genomics, proteomics and single-cell technologies, coupled with advances in allied areas like computing and antibody engineering have enabled significant progress in drug development. Current drug...
You have often wished to have a desktop ready reference for all the BD fluorochromes – a small, convenient tool like a ready reckoner. That is why we have brought you the BDB reagent fluorocards. These are a...
The COVID-19 pandemic caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has been rapidly spreading, leading to considerable morbidity and mortality worldwide. High infectivity of the virus, asymptomatic transmission and lack of effective anti-viral drugs and vaccines have made management of COVID-19 challenging. The continuous efforts to understand the immune response to SARS-CoV-2 infection […]
The high-dimensional flow cytometry portfolio by BD has been silently working in labs all around the world, performing cutting-edge multi-colour experiments at the very frontiers of immunology. Many high-impact publications and optimised multi-colour immunofluorescence panels (OMIPs) have resulted, revealing fascinating insights into a variety of research questions. To give a taste of what high-dimensional flow […]

Our portfolio comprising of multicolour flow cytometry, cDNA library preparation, single-cell RNA sequencing and advanced data analysis tools will give you unprecedented insights into the working of single-cells. What is more, […]
The BD FACSMelody™, a high-end cell sorter in an easy-to-use package, now packs more punch with 4-way sorting. This new feature enables you to spend less time on sequential runs and get more information from your precious samples by enabling the sorting of four different cell populations in a single run. The BD FACSMelody™ now […]
The BD Biosciences European Training Centre located at Erembodegem, Belgium offers a variety of classroom courses on instruments and applications. Courses on flow cytometry are delivered by experienced instructors, who combine theory and practical applications to give the participants a comprehensive exposure to the essential techniques and principles. The courses are designed to provide the […]
In this article published in Cell Reports, Mair et. al report a study on the use of targeted Multi-Omics to study immune-cell heterogeneity at a low sequencing depth. Working with sorted pan CD45+ live cells derived from cryopreserved PBMCs, the authors used a high-throughput (>104 single cells) approach in which they captured the cells in […]
Due to unavoidable circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated curbs on travel, we have decided to postpone the Multi-Omics Summit that was scheduled to take place in Frankfurt in July this year. Please watch this space for more news. BD and the BD Logo are trademarks of Becton, Dickinson and Company […]
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 than compatible cell sorters when it comes to increasing the number of available parameters. All that is set to change with the introduction of the […]
Long term immunoprotection or naturally acquired immunity is conferred by memory T cells and is initiated either upon the first exposure to a pathogen or vaccination. The maintenance of this immunological memory for long durations requires the preservation of T cell stemness and the ability of memory T cell compartments to alternate between an active […]
