TransFix® - Animal Blood Stabilisation
TransFix® can be used to stabilise whole blood from a wide range of different species including mouse, rat, guinea pig, sheep, seal, turtle, ostrich and pig. The volume of TransFix® required to stabilise blood varies considerably in different species and users must determine the optimal dilution required. Please contact us for further details.
Set up a range of TransFix® dilutions starting with 0.05ml of TransFix® per ml of whole blood, increasing in 0.05ml steps to 0.2ml. Mix well and store at 4°C for 10 days. After 10 days analyse the TransFix® treated samples by flow cytometry using the same method as before.
The optimal dilution of TransFix® for the animal species under examination is the concentration that gives the same scatter diagram as the fresh blood sample.
Bulk CE marked TransFix® is available as a bulk solution in 20ml and 100ml volumes, plus a 1ml sample size. Larger volumes are available. Please contact Cytomark for further information.
