Flow cytometry


The BD™ HLA-B27 system is a qualitative two-color direct immunofluorescence method for the rapid detection of HLA-B27 antigen expression in erythrocyte-lysed whole blood (LWB) using the BD FACSCanto™ family of flow cytometers, or the BD FACSCalibur™, BD FACSort™, or BD FACScan™ flow cytometer.

Contents: Anti-HLA-B27 FITC / CD3 PE, HLA-B27 calibration beads, and BD FACS™ Lysing Solution.

Preparation And Storage

• Store Reagent A and Reagent C upright at 2° to 8°C. Do not use after the expiration date shown on the label. • Store Reagent B, undiluted, at 2° to 25°C. When diluted, store at room temperature (20° to 25°C) for up to one month. • Do not freeze the reagents or expose them to direct light during storage or incubation with cells. Keep reagent vials dry.
