  • Gating strategy for tetramer analysis to eliminate non-specific event

    Wed, 14 Nov 2018 18:00:00 GMTBy:

    While MHC tetramer staining of antigen specific T cells for flow cytometry is considered highly specific, it could still be associated with non-specific staining. The gating strategy shown below is an example that investigators have used to reduce non-specific staining events using a dump channel. A dump channel can be planned on a case by case basis, on the experimental design, and consists of a pool of antibodies against cells that do not express our specific targets. For example, CD8+ T cells, anti-CD4/anti-CD14/anti-CD19 may be used to eliminate these immune cells from our targeted gate, and all may be labeled with the same fluorochrome.  Read more
  • Shed a little light in your cells using anti-GFP

    Wed, 24 Oct 2018 17:02:00 GMTBy: bindi.doshi@mblintl.com (Bindi M. Doshi, PhD)

    In 2008, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Dr. Roger Y. Tsien, Dr. Osamu Shimomura, and Dr. Martin Chalfie for their discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein (GFP).  Since then, fluorescent protein (FP) technology has made drastic advancements by many researchers.  FP antibodies are used in multiple applications.

  • Fc blockers to reduce background in Tetramer staining

    Tue, 25 Sep 2018 17:00:00 GMTBy: nakajo.tomohiro@mbl.co.jp (Tomohiro Nakajo)

    Fc blockers are needed for monocytes, macrophages, B cells and granulocytes. Since T cells normally do not express Fc receptors, some investigators do not use Fc blockers and instead use a dump channel (e.g. CD14/CD19) during flow cytometry analysis to exclude Fc-expressing populations.  Read more
