What makes each workflow step important?
|Enriches the desired population of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from whole blood collected using routine phlebotomy
|Facilitates correction for variation in PBMC counts and ensures the required number of cells are used to produce a reportable result
|Essential for the transfer of samples and reagent solutions throughout the workflow for accurate test results
|Interferon gamma antibodies capture a cell specific response to TB-specific antigens
|Single cell resolution for the detection of interferon gamma releas
The isolation of PBMCs from whole blood is critical
What is T-Cell Select™?
The cell isolation step of the T-SPOT.TB workflow is now automated using the T-Cell Select reagent kit eliminating manual errors and reducing technician time. This PBMC isolation reagent uses positive selection of targeted immune cells with magnetic bead-based cell separation to simplify the preparation of cells for the T-SPOT.TB test.
The T-SPOT.TB test with the T-Cell Select reagent kit provides you with:
- Superior clinical performance 1,2
- Reduced hands-on time
- Extended blood sample stability
- Improved blood sample logistics
- Maximized operational efficiency
- Increased sample throughput potential
