This unit presents protocols for preparation of lymphocytes from peripheral
(whole) blood or leucopherisis samples, first by differential centrifugation in
Ficoll-Hypaque to separate them from erythrocytes and granulocytes. Repeated
centrifugation removes the plasma and platelets. Monocyte/macrophage cells and
dendritic cells can be purified from the T and B cell population by exploiting
their adhesion to serum-coated plates in the presence of recombinant IL-3.
Different subpopulations of lymphocytes can be isolated by specific antibodies
bound to magnetic beads.
