Background

A simple and effective method for the isolation of mononuclear cells from human blood was reported by Dr. Arne Boyum in 1968. For more than 35 years a commercial medium known as LymphoprepTM has been widely used for isolating these cells.

Mononuclear cells (monocytes and lymphocytes) have a lower buoyant density than the erythrocytes and the polymorphonuclear (PMN) leukocytes (granulocytes). The vast majority of mononuclear cells have densities below 1.077 g/ml. These cells can therefore be isolated by centrifugation on an isoosmotic medium with a density of 1.077 g/ml, which allows the erythrocytes and the PMNs to sediment through the medium while retaining the mononuclear cells at the sample/medium interface.

The described method is rapid, simple and reliable and gives excellent results with blood samples from normal individuals and patients.

To obtain the maximum yield it is important that the blood sample is diluted 1:1 with physiological saline before being applied to the gradient.

The contamination of erythrocytes in the mononuclear cell suspension is usually between 3-10% of the total cell number.

Some immature PMNs may band with the lymphocytes during intense immunosuppressive therapy. When heparinised blood is used, it is essential to remove most of the platelets, in order to avoid inhibition in the cytotoxicity test.

LymphoprepTM can be used for the preparation of pure lymphocyte suspensions for tissue typing, antilymphocyte sera and immunological research. Thorsby and Brattelie used this technique with only slight modifications in the preparation of pure lymphocyte suspensions for cytotoxicity tests and lymphocyte cultures.
