Analyze NY-ESO-1-specific T cell populations:

  • Targeted detection: Choose MHC Dextramer® reagents from a range of HLA allotypes and a variety of different NY-ESO-1 epitopes.

  • Exceptional avidity: Thanks to a flexible backbone, Dextramer® reagents bind even T cells with low affinity, which may go undetected with tetramers.

  • Reliable results: High quality Dextramer® reagents ensure reliable experimental outcomes.

  • Unambiguous signal: The multiple fluorophores per Dextramer® backbone enhance staining intensity for a clear signal and minimal background noise.

  • GMP quality: MHC Dextramer® reagents are available in GMP quality, facilitating the translation of research findings into clinical reality.

NY-ESO-1 (New York esophageal squamous cell carcinoma 1), also known as LAGE2, is a cancer testis antigen expressed in various malignant cancers. Vaccines as well as TCR-engineered T cells are currently under investigation to target NY-ESO-1-expressing tumors. In fact, NY-ESO-1 was the most tested TCR target in a 2021 survey of cellular immunotherapies.

An essential aspect of validating a vaccine includes probing endogenous immune cell populations for NY-ESO-1-specific T cells. T cell therapy developers must also monitor the dynamics and persistence of transduced NY-ESO-1-specific T cells. Both demand highly granular examination of T cell populations.

MHC Dextramer® reagents are multimers designed for that purpose. Loaded with one or more epitopes, they deliver sensitive identification and specific discrimination between population subsets for a more complete picture of T cell responses.
