Custom Conjugation

BD custom services provide personalized solutions designed to supply researchers with the widest choice of tools to support their studies.

As a recognized leader in multicolor flow cytometry, BD’s custom product offerings include antibody conjugates, multicolor cocktails, and assay services delivered by scientists with deep expertise in multicolor flow cytometry and multiplexed protein assay development. BD custom products are backed by customer care delivered by highly-qualified BD technical and application support personnel.

Express Conjugation Service

With fast turnaround times and small minimum orders, the Express Conjugation Service delivers affordable custom antibody conjugates that help researchers quickly build unique multicolor flow cytometry panels to expand their research. A wide selection of 17 fluorochromes across over 300 of BD’s most popular antibody clones provides options to meet specific multicolor experimental design requirements. Small (0.5-mg) order minimums make the development of a custom antibody conjugate more affordable and allow tight budgets to go further.

A typical three-week turnaround time makes multicolor panel expansion fast and removes bottlenecks to downstream work.

Other Services

For researchers requiring custom conjugates of antibody specificities not offered by the Express Conjugation Service, full access to the BD Pharmingen portfolio of antibodies is available through a standard service with quantities and lead times that vary by format. Additionally, BD offers a test-ready conjugation service using our portfolio of RUO-GMP reagents to provide research and clinical labs with custom antibody conjugates that can be quickly and reliably incorporated into laboratory protocols.

For comprehensive services, including multicolor tools for immunophenotyping and immune function testing, assay development, contract manufacturing, and assay services, BD’s Custom Technology Team works as an extension of a client’s team to provide state-of-the-art tools to advance discovery and development programs.
