Description

The BD Leucocount™ kit consists of BD Leucocount™ reagent (propidium iodide fluorescent dye) and BD Trucount™ tubes and is intended for use with the BD FACSCalibur™, BD FACSort™, BD FACScan™, and BD FACSVia™ flow cytometer systems, or for a flow cytometer equipped with a 488-nm argon ion laser able to threshold on FL2, for enumerating residual white blood cells (rWBCs) in leucoreduced blood products.

Preparation And Storage

• Store BD Leucocount reagent at 2°C– 8°C. Do not use after the expiration date shown on the label. • Avoid unnecessary exposure of the reagent to light. • Do not freeze the reagents or expose them to direct light during storage or incubation with cells. Keep the reagent vials dry. • Store BD Trucount tubes in their original foil pouch at 2°C–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. Use tubes within 1 hour after removal from the foil pouch. Once the pouch has been opened, the tubes are stable for 1 month. Do not use beyond the expiration date indicated on the packaging.
