DriverMap Adaptive Immune Receptor (AIR) TCR-BCR Profiling Service
The DriverMap Adaptive Immune Receptor (AIR) Profiling Service from Cellecta provides you with a profile of all TCR and BCR CDR3 regions in blood, cell, or RNA samples.
With the DriverMap AIR TCR-BCR Profiling Service, you get
a larger complement of clonotypes than other similar assays
reproducible and comprehensive coverage from a range of immune sample inputs, including total RNA from whole blood
Rapid, 1-month turnaround
Cellecta’s DriverMap™ AIR TCR-BCR assay is designed to specifically amplify only functional CDR3 RNA molecules' TCR and BCR cells, avoiding non-functional pseudogenes with similar structures. The assay simultaneously amplifies, in a single, multiplex RT-PCR reaction, all TCR and BCR CDR3 regions using a set of 300 experimentally validated PCR primers to yield Illumina-compatible, next-generation sequencing (NGS) libraries.
While the profiling assay can be limited to return data on only the TCR or BCR repertoires, we recommend doing both. Comprehensive analysis of both the TCR and BCR repertoire is a promising strategy for unbiased discovery of predictive and prognostic biomarkers considering that both arms of the adaptive immune system work synergistically for many disease or adaptive immunity stimulus conditions.
Additionally, samples submitted for profiling using the DriverMap AIR Profiling Service can be run, in parallel, through our standard DriverMap Genome-Wide Targeted Gene Expression Profiling assay to generate gene expression profiles that provide phenotypic information for cell typing.
