Becton Dickinson AbSeq Immune Discovery Panel

Becton Dickinson has launched a single-tube antibody-oligo-based discovery tool called the BD AbSeq Immune Discovery Panel (IDP). The panel contains 30 different pre-titrated antibodies targeting most major immune markers, is supplied in a dried format, and allows researchers to include additional immune markers of interest. It is designed for the BD Rhapsody Single-Cell Analysis System, and intended to be used alongside protein, RNA, and multiplexing assays to enable sequencing-based immune cell phenotyping.
