Primary Immunodeficiency Orientation Tube
The Primary Inmunodeficiency Orientation Tube (PIDOT) has been designed alongside with a set of fully standardized methods and tools by the EuroFlow™ consortium for the study of Primary Immunodeficiencies.
The PIDOT kit has a broad applicability for many different PID of the lymphoid system providing a wide overview of the most relevant subsets of mature B-, T- and NK-cells.

Peripheral blood sample stained with PIDOT kit. The APS diagrams (Automatic Population Separator, Infinicyt™ software) display B and T-cell subpopulations. The colored lines represent the standard deviation of each population.


The PID Orientation Tube preserves the stability of the pre-mixed combination of antibodies until expiration date shown on the label. Reconstitute each lyophilized vial containing the pre-mixed combinations with 300 μl of distilled water. Unused volume of reconstituted vial is stable during four weeks from date of reconstitution if it is stored in the dark at 2-8º C.

PID Orientation Tube kit contains 4 lyophilized vials. Each vial contains a 10 conjugated antibodies mixture designed for the screening of primary immunodeficiencies by flowcytometry (FC). This 6-colors tube can be used for the study of defects and numerical changes in the relative distribution of the different leukocyte populations and subpopulations(1-3) (antigen presenting cells, memory, naïve and effector B and T cells, etc.). This reagent must be used by FC qualified personal.


Material included
PID Orientation Tube kit contains sufficient volume for 20 tests and includes:
