Description

BD Simultest™ CD4/CD8 is a two-color direct immunofluorescence reagent for enumerating percentages of mature human helper/inducer (CD4+) and suppressor/cytotoxic (CD8+) lymphocytes in erythrocyte-lysed whole blood (LWB). The helper/suppressor ratio (CD4+/CD8+) can also be determined.

Preparation And Storage

• For in vitro diagnostic use.

• When stored at 2° to 8°C, the antibody reagent is stable until the expiration date shown on the label. Do not use after the expiration date.

• The antibody reagent should not be frozen or exposed to direct light during storage or during incubation with cells. Keep the reagent vial dry.

• 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.

• The antibody reagent contains sodium azide as a preservative; however, care should be taken to avoid microbial contamination, which may cause erroneous results.
