Background information
Endothelial cells are cells lining the interior surface of blood vessels. Due to vascular damage, mature endothelial cells can be shed from the vessel wall and enter the circulation.
In healthy persons the absolute number of these circulating endothelial cells (CEC) in peripheral blood is very low [1,2]. Under pathological conditions, such as cardiovascular disorders, infectious diseases, immune disorders, pulmonary hypertension, sickle cell anaemia, status after organ transplantation and cancer, the absolute number of CEC in peripheral blood is significantly elevated [3-6].
Therefore, enumeration of CEC is nowadays considered as a promising tool for monitoring disease activity and assessing prognosis and response to treatment.





Kit contains all reagents required for rapid and reliable enumeration of circulating endothelial cells in whole blood samples according to a patented method [7].
Reagents include two specific endothelial cell markers, one marker for specific exclusion of leukocytes from the CEC gate and one marker allowing analysis of nucleated (live) cells.
