Muse® Human CD4 T Cell Kit

(Cat. No. MIM100101)

The Muse® Human CD4 T Cell Assay allows you to determine the concentration and percentages of CD4 T cells and lymphocytes in human whole blood or peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). Characterizing CD4 T cell counts and percentages is important in evaluating immune status, understanding disease mechanism, in vaccine research and immunotoxicity studies. The Muse® Human CD4 T Cell Kit allows for the detection and identification of lymphocytes and CD4 T lymphocytes in either whole blood or PBMCs using a simplified no-wash assay. The CD4 antibody identifies human helper/inducer CD4+ T cell (HLA Class II reactive) and recognizes a 60,000 Da surface antigen. Monocytes also express CD4 but at a lower density, and have no co-expression of the other antibodies present in the anti-lymphocyte cocktail; hence can be distinguished from CD4 T Cells in this kit. The simplified identification can be of great utility in understanding the role of CD4 T lymphocytes in development, response, and mechanism of disease.

Minimal sample preparation is required in this no-wash assay to obtain accurate and precise results. The software readout on the Muse® Cell Analyzer provides:
  • Count, percentage, and concentration of CD4 T cells
  • Count and concentration of lymphocytes
The Muse® Human CD4 T Cell Assay is for use with the Muse® Cell Analyzer. The Muse® System makes sophisticated fluorescent-based analysis fast, easy, convenient, and affordable. Sample preparation is minimal, and after loading samples onto the Muse® Cell Analyzer, the intuitive software provides detailed or summary analysis of your cell sample in a few short steps. Sufficient reagent is provided for the preparation and analysis of 100 tests.

CAUTION: This kit should not be used for patient diagnosis or patient management. For Research Use Only; not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Muse® Human CD8 T Cell Kit

(Cat. No. MIM100102)

The Muse® Human CD8 T Cell Kit is used in laboratory research studies to determine the CD8 T-cell count, total lymphocyte count, and CD 8 T-cell percent of lymphocytes in human whole blood and peripheral mononuclear cell (PBMC) samples. Identification and enumeration of cytotoxic CD8 T-cell populations are useful in understanding immune response and status, and in the research of disease mechanisms, such as autoimmune diseases, immunodeficiency.

The Muse® Human CD8 T Cell Kit allows for the detection and identification of lymphocytes and CD8 T lymphocytes in either whole blood or PBMCs using a simplified no-wash assay. The CD8 antibody allows the identification of CD8, a 68-kDa transmembrane glycoprotein expressed by class I major histocompatibility complex restricted, mature suppressor/cytotoxic T cells, the great majority of cortical thymocytes and approximately 30% of medullary thymocytes. In addition a proportion of γδ T cells and NK cells express CD8. Inclusion of several proprietary antibodies in the anti-lymphocyte cocktail allows for the unique identification of the CD8 cytotoxic T cells.

Minimal sample preparation is required in this no-wash assay to obtain accurate and precise results. The software readout on the Muse® Cell Analyzer provides:CD8 T-cell concentration in cells/μL
