Becton Dickinson Immunocytometry Systems has launched ProCount, a flow-cytometry assay for CD-34-positive haematopoietic progenitor cells. The kit, which is the first for this cell type, is for research use only and uses a combination of monoclonal antibodies, a nucleic acid dye and absolute counting beads. It gives absolute CD34 counts and CD34 as a percentage of both total leucocytes and total nucleated cells.
