Overview

CHANGE THE WAY YOU PROCESS CELLS TO
GET RELIABLY CONSISTENT DATA.

FCXM assays, however, typically use a legacy centrifugation method and its associated washing steps when preparing samples. The Laminar Wash technology provides an alternative that offers improved consistency and reduced biohazard aerosolization by eliminating the need of centrifugation. Microplate or sample ‘flicking’ or the use of a pressurized pipette are also eliminated, reducing the risk of cross contamination and user variation.

Benefits

BENEFITS OF LAMINAR WASH FOR HLA CROSSMATCHING

Assays for Flow Cytometry Crossmatching require many manual steps and the data must be reliable as transplant patients rely upon it for lifesaving surgeries. Laminar Wash technology benefits FCXM by:

  • Reducing hands-on time and reducing repetitive motion injuries
  • Improving reproducibility between operators
  • Enhancing cell retention
  • Reducing aerosolization of samples

Scientific Data

DATA USING THE LAMINAR WASH SYSTEMS

Reduced B Cell and T Cell Variability

B-cells and T-cell %CV of MFI of negative and positive controls. Data obtained by 3 different operators running samples in duplicates. Laminar Wash improves user-to-user CV and reduces human error.

Reduced Background without Pronase Treatment

a. Decreased background in pronase-independent B-cell crossmatching of PBL fresh cells with Laminar Wash™. b. ΔMCF was eliminated with Laminar Wash™ in non-pronase-treated B-cells crossmatched with negative control serum.
