The DuraClone 3 8 G Reagent Kit is a two color immunofluorescence staining reagent for the enumeration of absolute counts of total T-lymphocytes (CD3+) and suppressor/cytotoxic (CD8+ T-Cells. This reagent is intended for flow cytometry based analysis in lysed human whole blood samples, and is recommended for use on the Guava® Personal Cell Analysis (PCA) System. The DuraClone 3 8 G Reagent Kit contains fluorescently labeled antibodies that bind to CD3 and CD8 antigens found on the surface of circulating leukocytes in peripheral blood samples. The CD3 antigen is a complex of six proteins known collectively as the T-cell receptor (TCR) complex. The antibody used in this reagent binds to the 20 kDa ε chain of this complex. The CD8 antigen is a complex consisting of two disulfide linked subunits. The antibody used in this reagent binds to the 32 kDa α subunit of the complex. CD8 interacts with class I major histocompatibility complex molecules. Cells that are CD3+ and CD8+ are identified as suppressor/cytotoxic T lymphocytes. Decreased CD8+CD3+ cell counts have been associated with some forms of immunodeficiency.
