Discover our new packaging

At BD, we care not only for your experiment but also for the environment. We aim to reduce our carbon footprint by increasing our stock levels in Europe through our new manufacturing plant in Hungary, and the use of small, recyclable packaging.

-Ambient temperature packaging where possible, with no ice packs or dry ice.
-Low volume – Potentially saves truckloads of packaging material
-Recyclable and environmentally friendly.

Evaluating the expression patterns of multiple inhibitory receptors associated with T-cell exhaustion using multicolor flow cytometry

Persistent antigen stimulation of T-cells, typically observed during chronic infections or in tumor microenvironments, results in the loss of antigen-specific CD8+ T-cell effector function. This phenomenon is referred to as T-cell exhaustion and is characterised by the progressive loss of function and proliferative capacity, eventually resulting in clonal elimination.

A typical feature of T-cell exhaustion is the increased expression of inhibitory receptors, which attenuate T-cell activation through a variety of processes. Studies on the two well known inhibitory receptors, CTLA-4 and PD-1, have shown that their inhibition reverses T-cell exhaustion, diminishes tumor growth and improves survival rates. However, the inhibition of these two receptors has been seen to be ineffective in many patients due to the immune system developing additional, non-redundant inhibitory mechanisms.


BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue dyes

Optimally resolve dim populations with brighter options for the blue laser. BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 515 (BB515) is brighter than FITC, and BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 700 (BB700) is a brighter alternative to PerCP-Cy™5.5.
