Detecting antigen specific T cells in conjunction with intracellular cytokines

Tuesday, October 5th at 12:00PM ET

Dr. Orkash Hushur, MBL International

Using multicolor staining to detect antigen specific T cells with MHC tetramers and antibodies against other biomarkers is a powerful analytical tool set.  The information derived allows for profiling of antigen specific T cells by single analysis, and also provides time and cost savings to reduce the number of experiments and amount of precious samples and reagents used.  Learn best practices and helpful tips for using MHC tetramers in conjunction with antibodies. You will also have the ability to ask specific questions at the end of the presentation.   This presentation will cover:

  • Basic staining protocol for antigen specific T cell receptor (TCR) together with other surface markers
  • TCR and surface marker staining in conjunction with intracellular staining for cytokines
  • Antigen specific cell positive control preparation by using an antigen recall method

Simulating COVID-19 peptide presentation using the QuickSwitch™ MHC Platform

In this presentation, Dr. Yuri Poluektov, Research & Development Scientist focuses on the QuickSwitch™ MHC Platform, how it works and what the advantages are over regular tetramers. This presentation will also cover other interesting topics including:

*Identifying COVID-19 derived peptides presented to the immune system using QuickSwitch™

*MHC Class II QuickSwitch™ platform vs. MHC Class I QuickSwitch™ platform

Practical use of endoderm derived organoids generated from non-human primates

In this presentation Professor Ken Iwatsuki of Tokyo University of Agriculture focuses on organoids and organoids culture. In addition he presents choices of Wnt3a sources and research examples using organoids from monkeys as well as a discussion with the audience.

Best Practices for Antigen Specific T Cell Detection using MHC Tetramers

In this presentation we focus on using MHC tetramers for cell surface staining to detect antigen specific T cell populations. We will also cover many interesting topics including, sample preparation for cell staining, gating strategies for Flow Cytometry and techniques to ensure reduced background and high signal.
