A multiomics approach to defining the nature of early malignant transformations of the immune system -Webinar

The Cytohub

By Dr. Wendy Beguelin, Weil Cornell Medical College. During humoral immune response or infections, subsets of B-cells migrate to germinal centres in lymphoid follicles located in the lymph nodes and the spleen. Some of these germinal centre B-cells (GC B-cells) differentiate into memory B-cells and plasma cells. Understanding the biology of GC B-cells is crucial […]

Standardised flow cytometry, a key analytical platform in cell therapy manufacturing – Webinar

The Cytohub

The past two years have seen the “cell therapy revolution” begin. It now sees the patient’s cells being modified to fight a disease. This revolution brings along unique challenges from discovery through clinical trials to the clinic.  An evolving regulatory landscape, rapid advances in manufacturing technologies, products with complex mechanism of action and inherent variability […]

Reformulated for decreased spillover – The new BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet dyes.

The Cytohub

BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet dyes are being reformulated with improved chemistry to allow you to better optimise your flow cytometry experiments. The new formulations have similar emission and excitation properties as before but have the additional advantage of reduced spillover into the BUV395 detector. BUV563, BUV737 and BUV805 have already been reformulated, and BUV496 and […]

Reagents to study B-cell and T-cell interactions

The Cytohub

  The interactions between B cells and T cells within the germinal centres of peripheral lymphoid organs are crucial for the selection of high affinity B cells and development of long-lived memory cells in the context of T-cell dependent immune responses. Chemokine receptors play key roles in the homing, trafficking and retention of B cells […]

Patient well-being – The ultimate aim of all flow cytometry research

The Cytohub

As flow cytometrists, our focus is mostly on setting up the instruments and designing experiments with the most appropriate reagent panels. However, an undeniable fact is that our overriding concern should be about the suffering patients, who badly need our expertise and continuous research. To shed light on this aspect, BD organised an event titled […]

Isolation of Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMCs) made easy.

The Cytohub

The efficient and quick isolation of lymphocytes (B-cells, T-cells, NK cells) and monocytes, both commonly called peripheral blood mononuclear cells or PBMCs, is extremely important for scientists and clinicians working in the field of immunology. Compared with the traditional ficoll-gradient method, BD Vacutainer™ CPT tubes offer great advantages by simplifying the process of PBMC isolation. […]
