Immune Cell Functional Assays

Whether it is a simple lymphocyte proliferation assay, donor lymphocyte infusion (DLI) testing or mixed cultures, these assays are flexible for any laboratory. Choose from a variety of readouts including ATP bioluminescence, fluorescence and absorbance/colorimetry, and different package sizes.


ImmunoGlo TCP

ATP bioluminescence T-lymphocyte cell proliferation and viability assay kit

  • To measure T-lymphocyte proliferation with a non-radioactive assay
  • T-lymphocyte proliferation assay kits work right out of the box
  • Equal or improved sensitivity to a radioactive marker and 10-100 times increased sensitivity than WST-1 or CSFE assays
  • 3 assay kits available: Growth medium with IL-2, CD3 + CD28, or IL-2 + CD3 + CD28 for improved T-cell proliferation (see diagram)
  • A standardized 5-days incubation period can be varied if required
  • Readout has been validated, and can easily re-validated with the included standards and controls


T-lymphocyte proliferation with HemoGro growth medium +IMDM, +IL-2 alone, +CD3/CD28 or +IL-2/CD3/CD28 performed with ImmunoGlo TCP (culture period: 5 days)
