Join the live webinar on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 at 1pm EST with featured speaker Cristian Ionescu-Zanetti, PhD, Chief Technology Officer, Fluxion Biosciences as he provides an overview of ideal methods for sample processing.
The IsoFlux system is a bench-top solution for high-sensitivity circulating tumor cell (CTC) enrichment and recovery from blood samples, including samples collected in the BD Vacutainer® CPT™ Mononuclear Cell Preparation Tube. Based on Fluxion’s patented microfluidics, the IsoFlux System combines the power of antibody-based magnetic bead separations with the precision of flow cytometry. The IsoFlux System’s superior performance is proven daily in labs around the world, setting standards for CTC isolation efficiency, purity and ease of use.
- Validated using thousands of samples across key solid tumor types, including lung, colorectal, breast, prostate, pancreatic, kidney, liver bladder, etc.
- Validated to recover CTCs even during early-stage disease
A key area of improvement has been improving pre-analytical IsoFlux protocol steps to reduce variability, eliminate the need for training skilled personnel, and reduce potential sample loss. Traditional Ficoll™ gradient processing methods require considerable skill and training. To help mitigate common blood sample handling challenges, we've turned to the BD Vacutainer® CPT™ Mononuclear Cell Preparation Tube, the only fully-closed system for peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) separation.
- BD Vacutainer® CPT™ Mononuclear Cell Preparation Tubes:
- Are ideal for operators of varying skill levels
- Decrease the number of sample transfer steps before CTC separation, reducing the possibility for cell loss as PBMC separation is carried out in the primary blood collection tube
- Provide a solution for fast pre-processing and cryopreservation of PBMCs / CTC samples before processing
The BD Vacutainer® CPT™ Mononuclear Cell Preparation Tube may be used in a variety of downstream applications commonly used in life science research. It has been used by customers in conjunction with technologies such as Flow Cytometry, ELISPOT, Cell Culture, CTC Isolation and Single Cell Genomics, allowing for fast and simple sample processing.
