CD4+ expressing cells are either selected or depleted by incubating your sample with the directly conjugated CD4 Nanobeads. The magnetically labeled fraction is retained by the use of a magnetic separator. After collection of the CD4+ expressing cells, downstream applications include functional assays, gene expression, phenotypic characterization, etc.
MojoSort™ reagents are also compatible with column-based cell separation systems available from other vendors. Optimized protocols for cell separation using columns from in-house testing are provided for each kit under the “Related Protocols” section, as well as representative data on the product webpage (where available). Data generated using column separators are indicated on the figure legend.
Due to the property of the beads, MojoSort™ reagents typically require dilution for optimal use on column separators. Where available, recommended dilution factors for each kit component based on in-house testing are provided under the “Application Notes” section of the webpage.

Cell Separation (MojoSort™) - Quality tested
- Recommended Usage
10 µl Human CD4 Nanobeads for 1x107 cells in 100 µl of buffer.
- Application Notes
This kit is designed for the positive isolation of human CD4+ T cells from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). To maximize the purity of CD4+ T cells, we strongly recommend depletion of monocytes prior to isolation. Efficient isolation of monocytes can be achieved using Biotin anti-human CD14 antibody and Streptavidin Nanobeads.
Antibody or cocktail dilution to use in column: N/A

- Is there a way to detach your magnetic particles from the cell surface?
No, not currently. We have found that cells are functional without the need to detach the magnetic Nanobeads.
- What is the size of your magnetic particles?
The average diameter is approximately 130 nm.
- Are MojoSort™ Nanobeads compatible with other commercially available magnetic separation systems?
MojoSort™ magnetic particles can be used with other commercially available magnetic separators, both free standing magnets and column-based systems. Because MojoSort™ protocols are optimized for the MojoSort™ separator, the protocols may need to be adjusted for other systems. Please contact BioLegend Technical Service for more information and guidance. We do not recommend using MojoSort™ particles for BD’s IMag™ or Life Technologies’ DynaMag™.
