Direct Staining of Intracellular Antigens by Flow Cytometry: the Digitonin Method
Alternative method for cell permeabilization required prior to intracellular staining that does not require the use of Leucoperm™ Accessory Reagent.
The detection of intracellular antigens requires a cell permeabilization step prior to staining. This method provides an alternative procedure for use when protocol FC7. “Direct Staining of Intracellular Antigens: Leucoperm™ Accessory Reagent Method” does not provide the desired results. In some cases specific recommendations are provided on product datasheets, and these methods should always be used in conjunction with the product and batch specific information provided with each vial. A certain level of technical skill and immunological knowledge is required for the successful design and implementation of these techniques; these are guidelines only and may need to be adjusted for particular applications.
Note: This procedure causes a reduction in Forward Scatter (FSC) signal, so the flow cytometer set up may need to be adjusted to compensate.
Leucoperm™ is made for Bio-Rad by AN DER GRUB Bio Research GmbH.
