CD138+ Plasma Cell Enrichment from Whole Blood and Bone Marrow

CD138 expression is a hallmark of plasma cells and multiple myeloma cells, and it is considered a useful marker in plasma cells tumors diagnostics. Using our newly developed MARS® CS system (multi-physics automated reconfigurable separation) we demonstrate a cost-efficient, fast and robust workflow for isolation of CD138+ cells from whole blood and bone marrow samples within a short […]

A New Approach for High Recovery and Purity Isolation of Plasma Cells from Whole Blood

Characterization of Plasma Cells in Bone Marrow for different cytogenetic abnormalities is a common genetic test to diagnose and monitor cell malignant disease such as multiple myeloma (MM). Plasma cells in MM patients varied in proportion from <1% up to 100%. For the less invasive sample collection, circulating plasma cells (CPCs) in peripheral blood have emerged as an important […]
