It requires patience, long working hours and much effort. But finding the impossible need not be hard. BD Multi-Omics solutions are specially created to help you unravel complex biological […]
OMIP-068: High-dimensional characterization In this OMIP (Optimised Multicolour Immunophenotyping Panel), the authors describe a 24-color panel to characterise antigen-specific B cells and for the precise delineation of B cell subsets in chronic infection.1 B cells play an important role in infection response through the production of antibodies, antigen presentation and secretion of cytokines. The antibodies […]
Optimised Multicolour Immunophenotyping Panel In this OMIP (Optimised Multicolour Immunophenotyping Panel), the authors describe a 27-color phenotyping panel to study NK, or Natural Killer cells.1 The interest in NK cells began in the 1970s when it was discovered that they possess the ability to destroy tumor cells, and could play a role in controlling malignancies […]
Enabling your research into the immune response to COVID-19 There is now a pressing need to unravel the biological mechanisms underlying COVID-19 infections, as the pandemic continues to spread all around the world. Research studies have shown that there is an alteration in the composition of immune cells and dysfunctional immune response in COVID-19 patients. […]

T cell subsets in COVID-19 immune response CD4 and CD8 T cells are important for triggering an immune response to bacterial and viral infections. Complete blood counts (CBCs) are often carried out in patients suffering from infections. However, while CBC tests can detect lymphopenia in blood, they cannot measure the specific lymphocyte populations that are […]
Webinar by Prof. Susan Schlenner, University of Leuven, Belgium Regulatory T cells (Tregs) are a subset of CD4+ T cells that possess immunosuppressive functions. They play a key role in human health as their malfunction results in allergies and auto-inflammatory disorders. Loss of regulatory T cells results in a rare autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome called IPEX, […]
