BD FACSCount

Absolute counts and percentages with CD4 reagents

BD FACSCount™ reagents are provided as complete kits that streamline CD4 counting. These kits contain ready-to-use tubes with premeasured antibodies and beads for absolute counting, and fixative solution.


The BD FACSCount system precisely measures absolute numbers and percentage results of CD4-positive T lymphocytes, the cellular parameter most closely associated with HIV/AIDS disease progression and therapy decisions. The system also measures absolute numbers of CD3 and CD8 T lymphocytes. The system provides reproducible and accurate results even with low CD4 counts.

Three reliable assay kits are available to meet specific needs for CD4 counting. All BD FACSCount kits can be used with unlysed whole blood, which simplifies sample preparation and allows streamlining of the workflow.

BD FACSCount CD4 reagent kit

The BD FACSCount CD4 reagent kit enables the simultaneous enumeration of absolute counts and determination of CD4 percentages in unlysed whole blood. It is an essential tool in pediatric CD4 testing.*

BD FACSCount CD4/CD3 reagent kit

The BD FACSCount CD4/CD3 reagent kit allows the uncoupling of CD4 and CD3 enumerations from CD8. The single-tube format reduces cost and sample processing time, allowing limited resources to go further in the HIV/AIDS treatment program.
