PURPOSE: The present panel was optimized to quantify the relative frequency of the majority of the major T cell subsets currently described within human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) via the use of surface markers (Table 1). This includes all CD4+ T subsets that received a T helper—nomenclature to date and Tregs. Furthermore, a surrogate staining strategy for the identification of mNKT/MAIT cells without the need of Vα7.2 is proposed. The panel has been validated for fresh and cryopreserved PBMCs. Other tissue types have not been tested.

CELL TYPE: Fresh and cryopreserved PBMC
