MACS

Technology used to separate unique populations of cells from an undifferentiated specimen of blood, bone marrow, or other tissue. It relies on the use of antibodies to specific cell types. A multicomponent specimen that contains some desirable cells is bathed in a solution of magnetically tagged antibodies. The cells of interest are attracted into a magnetic field and then collected for identification, experimentation, or therapeutic manipulation.
