  • Robust T cell activation and expansion without the use of magnetic beads, feeder cells or antigens.
  • Consistent T cell expansion in serum- and xeno-free or animal component-free medium.
  • Differentiation of Th1, Th2 or Treg cells.

ImmunoCult™ for Dendritic Cells and Macrophages

Streamline your research on dendritic cells (DCs) and macrophages with ImmunoCult™ products designed for:

  • Generation of mature DCs and macrophages from isolated monocytes.
  • Obtaining high yields of mature DCs or macrophages with the desired phenotype and function.

Why Use ImmunoCult™?

  • Serum-free and animal-component-free medium.
  • Ready-to-use and optimized formulation for activation, expansion or differentiation of immune cells.
  • Results in a high yield of cells with the desired phenotype and function without the need to supplement with serum.
  • Media, activators and supplements can be used on their own or combined.

ImmunoCult™ for T Cells

ImmunoCult™
Human T Cell Activators


Application:

Activation and Expansion of T Cells

Description:

Soluble antibody complexes that recognize and cross-link CD3 and co-stimulatory molecules on the surface of the T cell in the absence of magnetic beads or feeder cells. It can be used in combination with ImmunoCult™-XF T Cell Expansion Medium or any other media for culturing human T cells.

Advantages:

  • Robust activation and expansion of human T cells without the use of magnetic beads, feeder cells or antigen
  • Provides a gentle activation stimulus that maintains high viability of activated and expanded T cells
  • Highly stable, filter-sterilized soluble reagent

ImmunoCult™
Human T Cell Expansion Medium


Application:

Expansion of T Cells

Description:

Serum-free and xeno-free medium optimized for the in vitro culture and expansion of human T cells isolated from peripheral blood. It can be used in combination with ImmunoCult™ T Cell Activators for bead-free activation of T cells.

Advantages:

  • No need to supplement the medium with serum
  • Supports robust T cell expansion at levels comparable to those in serum-containing media
  • Maintains similar proportions of CD4+/CD8+ cells to the start of culture after expansion
  • Expanded T cells are able to produce cytokines including IFN-gamma and IL-4

ImmunoCult™
Human T Cell Differentiation Supplements


Application:

Differentiation of T Helper Cell Subsets

Description:

Differentiation supplements containing human cytokines and blocking antibodies formulated to promote the robust activation, expansion, and differentiation of peripheral blood-derived, naïve, CD4+ human T cells into Th1, Th2 or Treg cells.

Advantages:

  • Formulated for the induction of human T helper cell differentiation
  • Optimized for use with ImmunoCult™-XF T Cell Expansion Medium
  • Support significantly higher levels of memory T cells in comparison to competitor differentiation kits
  • Supplied as a 50X concentrate; after thawing and mixing, the tube contents can be added directly to medium
