The BD Horizon™ Guided Panel Solution (GPS) – The guidance you need to design your panel

The Cytohub

We all know how tricky designing a panel can be. Numerous factors like instrument configuration, fluorochrome brightness, spectral overlap, antigen density and coexpression, and reagent availability must be taken into consideration.  The updated BD Horizon™ GPS allows you to upload the data to create resolution impact matrix (RIM) for your instrument and issues alerts when […]

Multicolor flow cytometry training at the BD European training centre in Belgium

The Cytohub

Multicolor flow cytometry experiments are tricky to perform – but not if one is trained by experts. The best practices for multicolour experiment design must be learned well for successful experimentation. So, what do you do if you are familiar with flow cytometry and the BD FACSDiva™ software, and wish to learn how to work […]

Automated well gating and much more – The IndexSort Plugin

The Cytohub

The IndexSort plugin was designed to give researchers the ability to automatically gate wells from .fcs data generated using the BD FACSAriaIII™, the BD FACSAria Fusion™, the BD FACSMelody™, the BD Influx™ System™, and the BD FACSymphony™ S6 cell sorters. It automatically identifies the cell sorter, generates parameters corresponding to the X and Y axes […]

Protein and mRNA expression in a single experiment – BD presents the AbSeq™ assay

The Cytohub

Protein and mRNA expression in the same run? Isn’t that science fiction? Not anymore! BD introduces AbSeq™, the multiomic option to analyze protein expression at the single cell level. AbSeq™ uses antibody-oligonucleotide conjugates (Ab-oligos) to detect cell surface proteins that can be added to mRNA sequencing. What’s more, BD AbSeq™ can be incorporated into the […]

High-dimensional single cell analysis identifies stem-like cytotoxic CD8+ T cells infiltrating human tumors

The Cytohub

It is well known that CD8+ T cells infiltrating tumors are largely dysfunctional, but do a subset of them retain functionality? To find an answer, researchers from Dr Enrico Lugli’s Lab at the Humanitas Institute, Milan, analyzed CD8+ T cells from 53 lung cancer patients using high-dimensional flow cytometry. Dr.Lugli and his team were able […]
