Product News: Expand Cell Biology Research with BD Biosciences at ASCB 2010

06 Dec 2012

Learn more about the large selection of reagent sizes, colors, cell culture surfaces, and multicolor flow cytometry tools from BD Biosciences. Products on display include the BD Phosflow™ T Cell Activation Kit for greater accuracy and reproducibility in T-cell research and new 25-μg and 25-test size reagents.

25-μg and 25-Test Size Reagents
To further enable multicolor flow cytometry, BD is introducing small sizes for many of its flow cytometry reagents. These small sizes allow you to cost effectively design and optimize multicolor panels as well as verify pilot experiments to fully leverage the power of multicolor flow cytometry.

Discovery Labware is the leading provider of cell culture surfaces, including BD BioCoat™, BD Falcon™, and BD PureCoat™, and environments that are proven to facilitate, accelerate, and enhance discovery. BD Biosciences offers a broad portfolio of cultureware vessels with surfaces specifically designed and characterized to meet the needs of a wide range of applications. Whether it’s an assay for the search for new drug therapeutics or for use in the culture of cells for basic and applied research, BD Biosciences has the right surface for every cell.

BD Phosflow™ T Cell Activation Kit
Both experienced and novice researchers can obtain more accurate and reproducible results using human whole blood sample experiments that enable the simultaneous analysis of multiple intracellular phosphoprotein and cell surface markers. You get a more information-rich view of cell signaling in discrete subpopulations. Combining isolation and analysis into a single step, BD Phosflow kits enable research involving complex cell mixtures. Using this technology, researchers can complete complex signal pathway analysis in less than a day and get a richer data set in a shorter period of time than traditional methods such as Western blotting and immunoprecipitation.

Multicolor flow cytometry is an ideal tool for the study of apoptosis, cell cycle, and cell proliferation,
particularly within subpopulations of cells. New literature is available to show you how parameters
can be combined or studied within the context of other cellular events such as cytokine secretion or protein phosphorylation. BD continues to innovate in this area with new products such as the BD Horizon™ violet cell proliferation dye (VPD450) and popular reagents such as antibodies
to cleaved PARP and caspase-3 available in new formats.
