In my lab we work with cord blood and we are looking for the fastest, simplest way to take a mixed population of cells from cord blood and identify, isolate and characterize the cells. Do you have any recommendations?

Answer

Dynabeads® CD34 Positive Isolation kit can be used for rapid isolation of CD34+ cells from a heterogeneous population of mononuclear cells from cord blood, bone marrow or peripheral blood. For more information, please refer to the protocol below:
