Optional Compensation Reagents

  • Batch-matched compensation reagent CD4 PE-Cy7
  • Batch-matched compensation reagent CD8 APC-Cy7


Store tubes in their original foil pouch at 2-27°C. Do not freeze the reagent or expose it to direct light at any time during storage or incubation with cells. Once the pouch is opened, use the remaining tubes within one month (when stored as directed). Do not use reagents beyond the expiration date indicated on the label. CAUTION: Due to the moisture sensitivity of the reagent, ensure the pouch is immediately and completely resealed after removing a tube. Do not remove the desiccant from the reagent pouch.


Refer to our website or contact your local BD representative for the lyse/no-wash protocol for direct immunofluorescence. Use aseptic blood collected in EDTA (ethylenediamine-tetraacetic acid) blood collection tubes.

  • Add 50 μl of well-mixed, anticoagulated whole blood in to the bottom of the air-dried reagent cocktail tube and mix to complete reconstitution by gentle pipetting/vortexing for four seconds. Incubate 15 minutes at room temperature. Protect from exposure to direct light.
  • Add 450 μl of 1X BD FACS™ lysing solution to the tube. Vortex to mix. Incubate for 15 minutes in the dark at room temperature.
  • The sample is analyzed on a flow cytometer with a setup optimized for antibody panels.

Store dry at 2-8°C. Reagent is stable for 12 months when stored as recommended. See vial label for expiration date.


Reconstitute the contents of one vial in 5 mL DMEM cell culture media to make a 2X stock; keep reconstituted reagent at 37°C until ready to process tissue or tumor sample. Do not use reagent any more than 30 minutes after reconstitution. Manually mince tissue or tumor sample in DMEM cell culture media and combine with 2X Tumor & Tissue Dissociation Reagent stock solution to achieve a 1X concentration. Incubate for 30 min at 37°C with gentle agitation (shaking water bath is best). The recommended sample size is from 0.05-1.0 grams of tissue or tumor. Refer to product insert for a detailed protocol.
