LevitasBio: LeviSelect Cell Depletion & Enrichment Kits

LevitasBio unveiled its LeviSelect suite of cell depletion and enrichment kits for immunology research. The kits are a targeted expansion of the company's LeviCell Advanced Workflow protocol for the targeted selection of immune cell subpopulations for downstream analysis and further subsetting. The kits, which allow for multiplexing, can be used to simultaneously enrich T cells, B cells, NK cells, and monocytes in an unbiased manner, with future kits expected to include subtypes from these populations.
