Cell Markers Guide for Human Immune Cell Characterization by Flow Cytometry 

Identifying different immune cell types can be difficult if you don’t know which markers to use. Our new guide for human immune cell characterization can help. This quick reference tool shows the markers commonly used to distinguish specific immune cell types by flow cytometry.

Immune Cell Isolation & Culture Guide

From natural killer cells and macrophages to dendritic cells and T cells, Bio-Techne offers cell selection and differentiation kits, cell culture media, fetal bovine serum, and an unparalleled selection of recombinant proteins and antibodies. Additionally, we continue to expand our selection of innovative tools for ex vivo cell manufacturing, making it easier for scientists to transition their research from discovery to the clinic. Learn more in this guide that describes the tools that we offer for isolating and culturing different immune cell types.

Cell Markers Interactive Resource Tool

Cell surface and intracellular markers are frequently utilized to identify different immune cell types. Explore our new Cell Markers Interactive Resource Tool to find the human and mouse markers that are most commonly used in the scientific literature to distinguish different immune cell types or cell-type-specific subsets.

Flow Cytometry eHandbook

Flow cytometry is a powerful technique that is widely used to identify and characterize different immune cell types in heterogeneous samples. For a clear, easy-to-follow guide to designing flow cytometry experiments and data analysis, explore our Flow Cytometry Handbook.

A Look Inside a Tumor: Mechanisms of Tumor Evasion and Immunosuppression in the Tumor Microenvironment

The tumor microenvironment (TME) plays a central role in inhibiting anti-tumor immune responses. Use our new poster to learn about the key mechanisms by which tumor cells, tumor-derived exosomes, regulatory T cells, myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs), and tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) mediate immunosuppression in the TME.

Application Note: Wes and Milo Synergize to Profile Immune Cell Populations in the Tumor Microenvironment

The complexity and heterogeneity of immune cell signatures in the tumor microenvironment (TME) make it a particularly difficult area of investigation for which advanced tools are required to achieve deeper analyses. Download this application note to see why you should use Wes or Milo over other multiparameter methods for analyzing heterogeneous TME cell populations.

Scientific Poster: Evaluation of the Expression of Immune Functional Markers in the Tumor Microenvironment

RNAscope® is an advanced in situ hybridization assay that allows for the visualization of single cell gene expression, targeting mRNA sequences directly in tissues. Learn more in this scientific poster showing how the technique can be utilized to evaluate the expression profiles of immune checkpoint and immune functional markers in the tumor microenvironment and the insight that this data may provide into potential combination therapies targeting different checkpoint pathways.

New Chemokine, IL-6 Family and FGF Signaling Pathways

Explore our newest interactive graphics showing the intracellular signaling pathways that are triggered by chemokinesIL-6 family cytokines, or fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family members.
