CD1d Dextramer® – Identify NKT Cells with Confidence

Non-conventional T Cells in the Spotlight

Natural killer T (NKT) cells are CD1d-restricted T cells that recognize lipids and diverse glycolipids of pathogens. Their importance to immunity is exemplified by their implication in the developed of autoimmune diseases, cancer, and possibly asthma.

The modular flexibility of CD1d Dextramer® reagents allows coupling CD1d with glycolipid alpha-Galactosyl Ceramide (α-GalCer) and an optimized number of fluorophores on a stabilizing dextran backbone. The result is a highly effective reagent to detect and enumerate invariant NKT (iNKT) cells.

CD1d Dextramer® is also available empty, without a lipid, so you load your lipid of choice, or create a negative control for your experiment.

Dextramer® Leaves No Cell Undetected

Combining the high avidity, stability, and ease of use, CD1d Dextramer® reagents shed new light on NKT cells

  • Use high-quality, research-ready reagents
  • Interpret resulting data with ease
  • Generate consistent and reproducible results
