BD is a worldwide company that provides medical technology products for a variety of industries. Of their worldwide segments, BD Biosciences is the segment of the company that has a focus on delivering cellular analysis products and services to support researchers in life sciences. The BD Biosciences products and services include monoclonal antibodies and kits, fluorescence-activated cell sorters and analyzers, reagent systems, cell imaging systems, and additional cell culture media products.
BD Biosciences provides a variety of products and services for the flow cytometry industry. These include instruments, applications, cell culture, and reagents. The reagents that BD Biosciences develops are single antibodies, ASR reagents, and multicolor cocktails.
BD Biosciences offers several reagent products in the form of antibodies and buffers, immunoassays, cell-based assays. The antibodies products include primary and secondary antibodies, as well as buffers and solutions and kits and sets. The antibodies that are available are applicable for ELISA capture, flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, and bioimaging, western blot, gel shift, and more. These antibodies are reactive for cat, chicken, cow, horse, human mouse, and more. The formats for the antibodies include Agarose, APC, AC-H7, Alexa Fluor®488, and Alexa Fluor® 555.
BD Biosciences develops multi-colored antibodies for human, mouse, and non-human primate species. The portfolio for this group of antibodies includes BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet reagents that are considered to be very bright and depending on the application can provide a unique level of brighten ss for application of the violet laser.
The antibody conjugates that BD Biosciences offers are available in sizes that range from small to large. The small size vials contain 25 tests and are suitable for numerous specificities. The large size vials contain 250 tests and are appropriate for common markers. Researchers are able to use the same conjugates throughout a study. The packaging for the large size reagents are ideal for regular assays or oversized studies.

My other passions include grilling, wine tasting, and real food. To be honest, my biggest passion is flow cytometry, which is something that Carol and I share. My personal mission is to make flow cytometry education accessible, relevant, and fun. I’ve had a long history in the field starting all the way back in graduate school.
