Mononuclear Cells

PromoCell Mononuclear Cells (MNC) represent the lymphocyte and monocyte fraction isolated from umbilical cord blood or peripheral blood. They are prepared by optimized low-density gradient centrifugation, which effectively reduces the granulocyte content. Red blood cells are gently but thoroughly depleted by proprietary techniques instead of osmotic lysis. This results in ultra-pure mononuclear cells with superior viability and unchanged biological function. In addition, the cells do not clump after thawing, allowing for easy handling and reproducible results.

The MNC can be used directly for experiments or as a starting material for the isolation of several cell types, e.g., hematopoietic and endothelial progenitors, monocytes, and lymphocyte subpopulations.
