New tutorial video on plate handling

The PVDF membrane in the bottom of ELISpot plate wells is quite delicate and can easily be damaged. In this new tutorial video we show you how to handle ELISpot plates to ensure unharmed membranes and thus optimal results.

Launch of Monoclonal Antibody to Mouse Ig2c

monoclonal antibodies to mouse ig2c

We are pleased to launch a monoclonal antibody specific to mouse IgG2c suitable in antigen-specific ELISA. The IgG2c allele is expressed in certain inbred mouse strains e.g., C57BL/6, C57BL/10, SJL, and NOD.

The antibody is available as purified and biotinylated in our web shop

A new apoD citation in our data base

Herzig et al. have analyzed plasma apoD with our ELISA. The authors have made an interesting study showing that physical activity per se and not loss in body weight attenuated several circulating lipoprotein lipids in sedentary overweight subjects. This means that physical activity already at a low activity level could have long term prevention effects on cardio-metabolic diseases.

Great news, you don’t have to run a marathon, just start walking!

Live cells after FluoroSpot assay enable plasticity studies

Abhishek Das and colleagues take advantage of the (underappreciated) fact that cells are alive and well after a FluoroSpot assay. By a clever single-cell sorting procedure of T cells onto an IFN-gamma/IL-8 FluoroSpot plate, the authors were able to first confirm that recent thymic emigrants produce only IL-8 and not IFN-gamma, and then – by removing the still alive cells with a pipette and transferring them to another plate for cloning – show that the very same cells transitioned into IFN-gamma producing Th1 cells.

The IFN-gamma/IL-8 FluoroSpot kit was customized for this particular project. FluoroSpot customizations may presently be developed upon request.

First external reference for our neutralizing anti-IL-21 mAbs

This recent paper by You et al 2017 demonstrates the utility of our unique antibody mixture MT216G/21.3m. By blocking the IL-21 activity of Th9 cells from breast cancer patients, the authors showed that CD8+ T cell-mediated tumor killing is dependent on IL-21 (and IL-9) from Th9 cells.
