Samples for flow cytometry analysis degrade rapidly after collection, affecting the immune profile of sample.
TransFix® is added at the point of collection, and allows for an extended time frame for flow cytometric testing. Useful for:
- analysing fragile samples such as cerebrospinal fluid;
- batching or shipping samples to other sites;
- and those awkward samples that come in late on a Friday.
Meet the TransFix family
TransFix is available in multiple formats to suit your needs:
Just TransFix. Lends itself to multiple applications and gives greatest flexibility to the user. We recommend adding 1-part TransFix to 5-part sample for most applications.
TransFix Sample Storage Tubes
A 1.2ml screw-cap tube pre-filled with 0.2ml TransFix. Simply add 1ml of sample already collected on anticoagulant if required, and mix by inversion.
TransFix/EDTA CSF Sample Storage Tubes
Optimised for samples with low cell numbers, the CSF tubes contain 0.2ml TransFix/EDTA for collection of 1-2ml CSF.
TransFix/EDTA Vacuum Blood Collection Tubes
Blood collection tubes pre-filled with TransFix and K3 EDTA to directly collect blood. Minimal sample handling at the point of collection.
Circulating Tumour Cell TransFix/EDTA Vacuum Blood Collection Tubes
Optimised Blood collection tubes to directly collect blood for downstream CTC isolation or characterisation.
