  • Application Area: Flow Cytometrc

"We have been using this product since we started performing flow cytometry in our lab 10 or more years ago. It has always been reliable. It is very easy to use (use as you would a patient..that is the whole idea of QC). I have always had successful results with the product. It is available when needed. All of the employees of the company whom with I have had interactions with have always been very helpful and pleasant. This goes back to Margaret Thompson many years ago. I would always recommend this product!"

  • Application Area:Flow cytometry

"We use this product as a control for CD4 TBNK subset testing. Really loved the Statslink that comes with it, very easy to use and we can get a large group of peer data to compare with, also knowing our data trend. This is important because knowing where we are at among other users gave us more confidence when precipitating CAP's proficiency testing program."

CD-Chex Plus is a positive procedural control for monitoring immunophenotyping by flow cytometry. It provides 30 assayed parameters including T-lymphocytes, B-lymphocytes, granulocytes, monocytes and NK cells. It is available in two clinically relevant levels of CD4+ cells and is assayed for a normal level of CD34+ cells. Designed to mimic a patient sample, CD-Chex Plus is manufactured from normal human peripheral blood leukocytes and erythrocytes. The whole blood control offers 30-day open-vial stability, eliminating the need to track thermal openings. Its long shelf life reduces the number of shipments, associated costs and time spent performing lot-to-lot correlation. CD-Chex Plus and CD-Chex Plus CD4 Low are available in cap pierceable plastic vials for use with automated flow cytometry sample preparation instruments, reducing errors and improving laboratory workflow.

It is a positive procedural control designed to verify the accuracy and reproducibility of the steps involved in the process of the immunophenotyping including reagent staining, erythrocyte lysis, sample preparation, and instrument performance. CD-Chex Plus is compatible with BD Biosciences and Beckman Coulter flow cytometry systems.
