DURAClone Dry Antibody Panels for Rare Event Detection

Rare event cytometry has emerged as a powerful and important tool in clinical research of blood disorders. Sensitive and specific detection of just a few dozen abnormal target cells among millions of normal cells is one of the most challenging applications in flow cytometry. The DURAClone RE kits have been optimized to accommodate either large sample volume or high cellular concentrations to achieve high sensitivity for rare populations.

Antigen expression patterns of greatly abundant normal populations may overlap with the expression patterns of rare abnormal cell populations. To ensure discrimination of abnormal from normal cells, a carefully selected combination of antibodies is needed. The DURAClone RE kits consist of expert-proven, pre-formulated 7- to 8- color dry antibody panels to optimally identify and characterize rare abnormal blood cell populations in human whole blood or bone marrow.
