The EasySep™ Human Th17 Enrichment Kit is a two-step method designed to enrich human Th17 cells from fresh peripheral blood nucleated cells. CD4+CXCR3- T cells are first pre-enriched by negative selection using EasySep™ Human CD4+CXCR3- T Cell Pre-Enrichment Cocktail. Unwanted cells are targeted for removal with Tetrameric Antibody Complexes (TAC) recognizing  CD8, CD14, CD16, CD19, CD20, CD36, CD56, CD66b, CD123, TCRγ/δ, glycophorin A, CD45RAhigh, CXCR3 and dextran-coated magnetic particles. The labeled cells are separated using an EasySep™ magnet without the use of columns. Desired cells are poured off into a new tube. Following pre-enrichment, CCR6 positive CD4+CXCR3- T cells are selected using EasySep™ Human CCR6 Positive Selection Cocktail. Cells are targeted with TAC recognizing CCR6 and dextran-coated magnetic particles. Labeled cells are separated using an EasySep™ magnet and remain in the tube while the unwanted cells are poured off. The selection steps can be fully automated using RoboSep™.

Product Type: Cell isolation products
Recommended For:
Enrichment of Th17 cells from freshly isolated peripheral blood mononuclear cells, leukapheresis or buffy coat less than 24 hours old.
Components:
• EasySep™ Human CD4+CXCR3- Pre-Enrichment Cocktail, 1.0 mL
• EasySep™ Magnetic Particles, 2 x 1.0 mL
• EasySep™ Human CCR6 Positive Selection Cocktail, 0.5 mL
• EasySep™ Magnetic Nanoparticles, 1.0 mL
Equipment Required:
Advantages:
This kit provides a method to obtain live, non-activated Th17 cells that produce high levels of IL-17 and minimal amounts of IFN-g. Enriched cells could be used immediately for ex vivo studies or for further expansion.

FAQS:


  • HOW EASYSEP™ WORKS

    • Q. CAN EASYSEP™ BE USED FOR EITHER POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE SELECTION?
      A. Yes. The EasySep™ kits use either a negative selection approach by targeting and removing unwanted cells or a positive selection approach targeting desired cells. Depletion kits are also available for the removal of cells with a specific undesired marker (e.g. GlyA).
    • Q. HOW DOES THE SEPARATION WORK?
      A. Magnetic particles are crosslinked to cells using Tetrameric Antibody Complexes (TAC). When placed in the EasySep™ Magnet, labeled cells migrate to the wall of the tube. The unlabeled cells are then poured off into a separate fraction.
    • Q. WHICH COLUMNS DO I USE?
      A. The EasySep™ procedure is column-free. That's right - no columns!
    • Q. HOW CAN I ANALYZE THE PURITY OF MY ENRICHED SAMPLE?
      A. The Product Information Sheet provided with each EasySep™ kit contains detailed staining information.
    • Q. CAN EASYSEP™ SEPARATIONS BE AUTOMATED?
      A. Yes. RoboSep™, the fully automated cell separator, automates all EasySep™ labeling and cell separation steps.
    • Q. CAN EASYSEP™ BE USED TO ISOLATE RARE CELLS?
      A. Yes. We recommend a cell concentration of 2x108 cells/mL and a minimum working volume of 100 µL. Samples containing 2x107 cells or fewer should be suspended in 100 µL of buffer.

    EASYSEP™ MAGNETIC PARTICLES

    • Q. ARE THE EASYSEP™ MAGNETIC PARTICLES FACS-COMPATIBLE?
      A. Yes, the EasySep™ particles are flow cytometry-compatible, as they are very uniform in size and about 5000X smaller than other commercially available magnetic beads used with column-free systems.
    • Q. CAN THE EASYSEP™ MAGNETIC PARTICLES BE REMOVED AFTER ENRICHMENT?
      A. No, but due to the small size of these particles, they will not interfere with downstream applications.
    • Q. HOW DOES THE BINDING OF THE EASYSEP™ MAGNETIC PARTICLE AFFECT THE CELLS? IS THE FUNCTION OF POSITIVELY SELECTED CELLS ALTERED BY THE BOUND PARTICLES?
      A. Hundreds of publications have used cells selected with EasySep™ positive selection kits for functional studies. Our in-house experiments also confirm that selected cells are not functionally altered by the EasySep™ magnetic particles.

      If particle binding is a key concern, we offer two options for negative selection. The EasySep™ negative selection kits can isolate untouched cells with comparable purities, while RosetteSep™ can isolate untouched cells directly from whole blood without using particles or magnets.

    MODIFYING THE EASYSEP™ PROTOCOL

    • Q. CAN I ALTER THE SEPARATION TIME IN THE MAGNET?
      A. Yes; however, this may impact the kit's performance. The provided EasySep™ protocols have already been optimized to balance purity, recovery and time spent on the isolation.
    • Q. FOR POSITIVE SELECTION, CAN I PERFORM MORE THAN 3 SEPARATIONS TO INCREASE PURITY?
      A. Yes, the purity of targeted cells will increase with additional rounds of separations; however, cell recovery will decrease.
