Flow cytometry


The BD™ Stem Cell control is intended as a complete, two-level, process control for immunophenotyping and enumeration of leucocytes by flow cytometry. It is a control for antibody staining, red blood cell (RBC) lysis, instrument setup and performance, and data analysis.

Contents: 1 x 2.0 ml CD34+ Low approx. 10 cells/µl, and 1 x 2.0 ml CD34+ High approx. 35 cells/µl.

Preparation And Storage

• Store vials upright, tightly capped, at 2°C to 8°C when not in use.

• Unopened vials are stable until the expiration date indicated on each vial and assay sheet.

• Opened vials are stable for 12 thermal cycles (uses) when handled properly. A thermal cycle constitutes performing all steps under Section 5, Instructions for Use, once.

• Avoid unnecessary cycles of warming and cooling. Protect this product from freezing, from temperatures above 30°C, and from prolonged time at room temperature (18°C to 26°C). Follow exactly the steps in Section 5 Instructions For Use.
