BD Multitest™


The BD Multitest™ IMK kit is a four-color direct immunofluorescence reagent kit for use with a suitably equipped flow cytometer to identify and determine the percentages and absolute counts of the following mature human lymphocyte subsets in erythrocyte-lysed whole blood: T lymphocytes (CD3+), B lymphocytes (CD19+), helper/inducer T lymphocytes (CD3+CD4+), suppressor/cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CD3+CD8+), and natural killer (NK) lymphocytes (CD3–CD16+and/or CD56+).

BD Trucount™ tubes are used for determining absolute counts. BD Multitest™ reagents and BD Trucount tubes can be used with the BD FACS™ Loader.

Preparation And Storage

Store the reagent at 2° to 8°C. Do not use after the expiration date shown on the label. Do not freeze the reagent or expose it to direct light during storage or incubation with cells. Keep the reagent vial dry. Store BD Trucount tubes in their original foil pouch at 2° to 25°C. To avoid potential condensation, open the pouch only after it has reached room temperature and carefully reseal the pouch immediately after removing a tube. Examine the desiccant each time you open the pouch. If the desiccant has turned from blue to lavender, discard the remaining tubes. An unopened pouch is stable until the expiration date shown on the packaging. Do not open and use tubes after this expiration date. Use tubes within 1 hour after removal from the foil pouch. Use remaining tubes within 1 month after opening the pouch.
