Figure 1. Depletion of lineage-committed cells from mouse bone marrow. BALB/c bone-marrow cells were labeled with BD™ IMag Mouse Hematopoietic Progenitor Enrichment Set - DM (Cat. No. 558451) containing  Biotin Anti-Mouse CD3, Anti-Mouse CD11b, Anti-Mouse CD45R/B220, Anti-Mouse Ly-6G and Ly-6C, and Anti-Mouse Erythroid Cells mAbs.  After washing, the cells were labeled with BD™ IMag Streptavidin Particles Plus - DM (Cat. No. 557812) at 50 µl/1x10^7 total cells. The labeled cells were then separated on a BD™ IMag Cell Separation Magnet (Cat. No. 552311). Unmanipulated bone marrow cells and the final depleted fraction were stained with APC Anti-Mouse CD117 (Cat. No. 553356) to detect hematopoietic progenitors, and with PE Anti-Mouse TER-119 (Cat. No. 553673), CD45R/B220 (Cat. No. 553089/553090), and CD11b (Cat. No. 557397/553311) mAbs to detect lineage-commited cells.  The percentage of positive cells is indicated in each panel; placement of each marker is based upon staining with the appropriate isotype control (data not shown). The final depleted fraction contains an increased proportion of CD117+ cells and less than 5% of lineage-positive contaminants.

Figure 2. Positive selection of human CD3-positive lymphocytes. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were labeled with Biotin Anti-Human CD3 mAb (Cat. No. 555338) and BD™ IMag Streptavidin Particles - DM at 20 µl/10^7 total cells. After labeling, the cells were separated using the Cell Separation Magnet, and the negative (CD3 ) and positive (CD3+) fractions were collected. Please refer to the Positive Selection Flow Chart to identify the separated cell populations represented in this figure. For flow cytometric analysis, fresh PBMC (left panel), the negative fraction (middle panel), and the positive fraction (right panel) were stained with PE Anti-human CD3 mAb (Cat. No. 555333). The percent CD3+ cells in each sample is given. Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACSCalibur™ flow cytometry system.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. Antibody or streptavidin was conjugated to the magnetic particles under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody/streptavidin was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

A detailed Magnetic Labeling and Separation Protocol follows. In brief, cells are labeled with the biotinylated antibody, which recognizes the subpopulation of interest. After washing away excess antibody, BD IMag™ Streptavidin Particles Plus -DM are added to the cell suspension and bind the biotinylated antibody on the cells. The tube containing this labeled cell suspension is then placed within the magnetic field of the Cell Separation Magnet (Cat. No. 552311). Positive selection or depletion is then performed. Labeled cells migrate toward the magnet (positive fraction), leaving the unlabeled cells in suspension so they can be drawn off (depleted or negative fraction). The tube is then removed from the magnetic field for resuspension of the positive fraction. The selections are repeated twice to increase the purity of the positive fraction and the yield of the depleted fraction. The magnetic separation steps are diagrammed in the accompanying Depletion and Positive Selection Flow Charts. The small size of the BD IMag™ particles allows the positive fraction to be further evaluated in downstream applications such as flow cytometry.

MAGNETIC LABELING AND SEPARATION PROTOCOL

1. Prepare buffers and place on ice.

        a. Cell-staining buffer: Phosphate Buffered Saline, 3% heat inactivated fetal calf serum, 0.1% sodium azide.

        b. 1X BD IMag buffer : Dilute BD™ IMag Buffer (10X) (Cat. No. 552362) 1:10 with sterile distilled water or prepare Phosphate Buffered         Saline, supplemented with 0.5% BSA, 2 mM EDTA, and 0.1% sodium azide.*

2. Aseptically prepare a single-cell suspension from the lymphoid tissue of interest or prepare PBMC from anti-coagulated blood, preferably by density gradient centrifugation using the appropriate density Ficoll-Hypaque solution. Remove clumps of cells and/or debris by passing the suspended cells through a 70-µm nylon cell strainer.

3. Count the cells, and resuspend them in cell-staining buffer at a concentration of 2 x 10^7 cells/ml.

4. Optional: If needed, add BD Mouse Fc Block™ Purified Anti-Mouse CD16/CD32 mAb 2.4G2 (Cat. No. 553141/553142) or BD Rat Fc Block™ Purified Anti-Rat CD32 mAb D34-485 (Cat. No. 550270/550271) at 0.25 µg/10^6 cells, and incubate on ice for 15 minutes.

5. Add the biotinylated antibody (or cocktail of biotinylated antibodies) at the appropriate concentration, and incubate on ice for 15 minutes.†

6. Wash the labeled cells with an excess volume of 1X BD IMag™ buffer, and carefully aspirate ALL the supernatant. For depletions, proceed with Step 7. For positive selections, proceed with Step 18.

Depletions:

7. Vortex the BD IMag™ Streptavidin Particles Plus - DM thoroughly, and add 50 µl of particles for every 1 x 10^7 total cells.

8. MIX THOROUGHLY. Refrigerate mouse or rat leukocytes for 30 minutes at 6°C -12°C. Incubate human PBMC at room temperature for 30 minutes.†

9. Bring the labeling volume up to 2 to 8 x 10^7 cells/ml with 1X BD IMag™ buffer or culture medium.*

10. Transfer the labeled cells to a 12 x 75 mm round-bottom test tube, maximum volume added not to exceed 1.0 ml. Place this positive-fraction tube on the Cell Separation Magnet (horizontal position) for 6 to 8 minutes.

        -For greater volume, transfer the cells to a 17 x 100 mm round-bottom test tube, maximum volume added not to exceed 3.0 ml. Place this positive-fraction tube on the Cell Separation Magnet (vertical position) for 8 minutes.

11. With the tube on the Cell Separation Magnet and using a glass Pasteur pipette, carefully aspirate the supernatant (depleted fraction) and place in a new tube.

12. Remove the positive-fraction tube from the Cell Separation Magnet, and add 1X BD IMag™ buffer (or medium) to the same volume as in Step 9. Resuspend the positive fraction well by pipetting up and down 10 to 15 times and place back on the Cell Separation Magnet for 6 to 8 minutes.

        -17 x 100 mm tube: Place on the Cell Separation Magnet for 8 minutes.

13. Using a new Pasteur pipette, carefully aspirate the supernatant (wash fraction) and combine with the depleted fraction from Step 11 above.

14. Repeat Steps 12 and 13. The combined depleted fraction contains cells with no bound antibodies or magnetic particles. These cells are ready for downstream applications, or they can be further enriched by proceeding to Step 16.

15. The positive-fraction cells remaining in the original tube can be resuspended in an appropriate buffer or culture medium for downstream applications, including flow cytometry.

16. To increase the purity of the combined depleted fraction, place the tube on the Cell Separation Magnet for another 6 to 8 minutes.

        -17 x 100 mm tube: Place on the Cell Separation Magnet for 8 minutes.

17. Carefully aspirate the supernatant and place in a new tube. This is the final depleted fraction. The cells are ready to be processed for downstream applications.  

Positive Selections:

18. Vortex the BD IMag™ Streptavidin Particles Plus - DM thoroughly, and add 10 to 50 µl of particles for every 1 x 10^7 total cells. The amount of particles to add will vary depending on how many cells one is targeting and the cell-surface density of the antigen. Please refer to the optimal concentration information on Page 2 for some common examples.

19. MIX THOROUGHLY. Refrigerate mouse or rat leukocytes for 30 minutes at 6°C -12°C. Incubate human PBMC at room temperature for 30 minutes.†

20. Bring the labeling volume up to 2 to 8 x 10^7 cells/ml with 1X BD IMag™ buffer.

21. Immediately place the tube onto the Cell Separation Magnet and incubate for 6 to 8 minutes.

22. With the tube on the Cell Separation Magnet, carefully aspirate the supernatant. This supernatant is considered the negative fraction.

23. Remove the tube from the Cell Separation Magnet, and add 1X BD IMag™ buffer to the same volume as in Step 20. Gently resuspend the cells by pipetting up and down, and return the tube to the Cell Separation Magnet for another 2 to 4 minutes.

24. With the tube on the Cell Separation Magnet, carefully remove the supernatant (wash fraction).

25. Repeat Steps 23 and 24.

26. After the final wash step, remove the tube from the Cell Separation Magnet. Resuspend the positive fraction in an appropriate buffer or culture medium, and proceed with desired downstream application(s), including flow cytometry.

NOTES:

*For depletion of mouse leukocytes, tissue culture medium usually results in a slight increase in viability and recovery, when compared to IMag buffer, without reducing cell purity. We recommend that researchers run a trial comparison of media to buffer to make sure that there are no adverse effects.

†Avoid non-specific labeling by working quickly and adhering to recommended incubation times.
