CellTrend has established in-vitro test systems on primary human leukocytes, whereby various subpopulations derived from human peripheral blood by density gradient centrifugation or by magnetic beat isolation are used:

  • Neutrophils
  • Monocytes
  • Dendritic cells
  • CD-4-Lymphocytes
  • CD-8-Lymphocytes
  • B-Lymphocytes
  • Natural killer cells

The following assays are used to determine immunological effects:

  • Cytotoxicity-Assay against tumor cells
  • Migration-Assay
  • Proliferation-Assay
  • Apoptosis-Assay
  • Reactive oxygen species
  • Cytokine-Release
  • Cell surface antigens

Study designs as well as the test systems themselves are individually adapted to customers needs.
