Flow Cytometry, Live Cell Protocol for Directly Conjugated Antibodies

A. Solutions and Reagents

NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.

  1. 1X Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS): To prepare 1 L 1X PBS: add 100 ml 10X PBS (#12528) to 900 ml water, mix.
  2. Antibody Dilution Buffer: Purchase ready-to-use Flow Cytometry Antibody Dilution Buffer (#13616), or prepare a 0.5% BSA PBS buffer by dissolving 0.5 g Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) (#9998) in 100 ml 1X PBS. Store at 4°C.

NOTE: When including fluorescent cellular dyes in your experiment (including viability dyes, DNA dyes, etc.), please refer to the dye product page for the recommended protocol. Visit for a full listing of cellular dyes validated for use in flow cytometry.

B. Immunostaining

NOTE: Count cells using a hemocytometer or alternative method.

NOTE: If using whole blood, lyse red blood cells and wash by centrifugation prior to Immunostaining.

NOTE: Optimal centrifugation conditions will vary depending upon cell type and reagent volume. Generally, 150-300g for 1-5 minutes will be sufficient to pellet the cells.

  1. Aliquot desired number of cells into tubes or wells. (Generally, 5x105 to 1x106 cells per assay.)
  2. Pellet cells by centrifugation and remove supernatant.
  3. Resuspend cells in 100 µl of diluted primary antibody, prepared in Antibody Dilution Buffer at a recommended dilution or as determined via titration.
  4. Incubate for 30 min to 1 hr on ice. Protect from light.
  5. Wash by centrifugation in Antibody Dilution Buffer. Discard supernatant. Repeat.
  6. Resuspend cells in 200-500 µl of Antibody Dilution Buffer and analyze on flow cytometer.

Specificity / Sensitivity

TCRβ (H57-597) Hamster mAb (PE Conjugate) recognizes endogenous levels of total TCRβ protein. This antibody detects an epitope within the extracellular domain.

Source / Purification

This monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant via affinity chromatography. The purified antibody was conjugated under optimal conditions, with unreacted dye removed from the preparation.


The αβ T Cell Receptor (TCR) is a heterodimer composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain expressed on the surface of T cells (1,2). It detects peptide antigen presented by major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules (1,2). Detection of cognate antigen leads to activation of the TCR signaling pathway through the CD3 signaling chains that associate with the TCR (1). The TCR chains are made up of a constant region and variable regions that get rearranged during T cell development in the thymus (3). There are two TCRβ constant genes, TRBC1 and TRBC2 (3). A population of normal T cells is polyclonal and contains a mix of TRBC1- and TRBC2-expressing T cells, while T cell malignancies are monoclonal and all express the same TCR which either contains TRBC1 or TRBC2 (4). Therefore, it is possible that T cell malignancies could be identified and targeted with reagents or therapies that can distinguish between TRBC1 and TRBC2 (4).
The H57-597 antibody is widely used as a phenotypic marker for T cells expressing the αβ TCR. This antibody does not cross-react with γδ TCR (5).
