CD4 Count

CD4 Count is Streck’s assayed, whole-blood quality control for verifying the accuracy of the BD FACSCount™ flow cytometer. The easy-to-read assay includes absolute counts and percent positive ratios on the cellular populations of CD3, CD4, and CD8 T-lymphocytes. CD4 count is available in two levels of control material. The normal level provides a normal CD4 count, which is found in healthy individuals, and the low level provides a depressed CD4 count, which is monitored by clinicians for HIV/AIDS disease progression and therapy decision making.

Cell-Free DNA BCT*

Cell-Free DNA™ BCT is Streck’s 10-mL, direct-draw, blood collection tube for the preservation of cell-free plasma DNA. The proprietary stabilizing reagent in Cell-Free DNA BCT prevents the release of cellular genomic DNA and inhibits nuclease activity, enabling the long-term preservation of cell-free DNA in plasma. Samples collected in Cell-Free DNA BCT require minimal sample manipulation and are stable for 14 days at room temperature, allowing shipping and sample processing. Intended for clinical research, drug discovery, and diagnostic assay development. *For research use only.

Leuko Preserve

Leuko Preserve is a preservative for the stabilization of residual white blood cells in leuko-reduced red blood cell samples. Residual white blood cells are stable for up to 7 days following leuko-reduction, allowing flexibility in the leuko-reduction quality control process that may be necessary due to sample transport, sample backlog, or flow cytometer downtime. Leuko Preserve is intended for use with commercially available kits for detecting and enumerating rWBCs by flow cytometric analysis.

STaK-Chex® Plus Retics

STaK-Chex® Plus Retics is the first fully-integrated control on the market for Beckman Coutler instruments—a 5-part WBC differential control, automated retic control and a nucleated red blood cell control all in one. Customers can replace up to three separate controls because STaK-Chex Plus Retics is able to analyze these parameters with a single run. STaK-Chex Plus Retics provides stable and consistent values throughout the 14-day open-vial and 105-day closed-vial dating, providing customers with confidence that their instrument is reporting accurate patient results. The 4.5mL pierceable cap vial is barcoded and compatible with all instruments. An assay disk is also available.

Surmodics


CodeLink® Activated Microarray Slides* 

CodeLink® and CodeLink® High-Density (HD) Activated Microarray Slides offer the precision, reproducibility, and sensitivity required for successful microarray applications.The key is SurModics’ patented hydrophilic polymer coating, which covalently binds DNA, RNA, and protein. The slides are easy-to-use and are compatible with most arraying and scanning equipment. CodeLink microarray slides maximize DNA, RNA, and protein attachment, ensure slide-to-slide consistency, produce very low background with high signal-to-noise ratio, and allow for optimized protocols for spotting and hybridization. In addition, a specialized surface on the CodeLink High-Density Slides enables spotting densities of greater than 20,000 features per slide. *For research use only.

XT-4000i*

The Sysmex XT-4000iTM is a fully automated, 30-parameter hematology analyzer capable of processing approximately 80 samples per hour. Using the same advancedfluorescent technology of the Sysmex XE-5000 flagship hematology analyzer, the XT-4000i provides a six-part differential including the standard five-part diff plus immature granulocytes. Another capability unique to Sysmex analyzers is the RET-He parameter, an indicator of functional availability of iron for incorporation in RBC production. The XT-4000i also provides fully automated body fluid cell counts for RBC, WBC, TC, and two-part differentiation of polymorphonuclear and mononuclear cell types in percentage and absolute units. *Pending FDA clearance.
