BD FastImmune™
Flow cytometry


The BD FastImmune™ CD4 Intracellular Cytokine Detection Kit is designed for the detection of intracellular cytokines and the activation marker CD69 in antigen-activated CD4+ T lymphocytes in whole blood. Applications include studies of T-cell responses to antigens, such as herpes viruses, HIV, and tumor antigens.

Contents: Antibody Cocktail (IL-2 FITC, CD69 PE, CD4 PerCP-Cy™5.5), Isotype Ctrl Cocktail, Co-Stimulatory Antibody Cocktail (CD28/CD49d), Brefeldin A (BFA) Solution, EDTA Solution, BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (10x), BD FACS Permeabilizing Solution 2 (10x).

Preparation And Storage

Upon receipt, thaw BFA, dispense into 10 µL aliquots, and store at –20°C.

Store each kit at 2° to 8°C.

BD FACS Lysing Solution (10X) and BD FACS Permeabilizing Solution 2 (10X) are each stable for the period shown on the appropriate bottle label when stored as directed. Do not use either reagent if discoloration occurs or a precipitate forms. Dilute 1:10 in deionized (DI) water. Use at room temperature.

When stored at 2° to 8°C, each antibody reagent is stable until the expiration date shown on the label. Do not use after the expiration date. Conjugated forms should not be frozen and should be protected from prolonged exposure to light. Alteration in the appearance of the reagent, such as precipitation or discoloration, indicates instability or deterioration. In such cases, the reagent should not be used.
