Improve Your Research With
Human PBMC Samples

We can collect human PBMC samples to meet your research project needs. We can obtain samples from healthy or diseased donors according to your specific requirements. PBMC samples are provided viably frozen.

PBMCs are a subset of blood cells which have a round nucleus. These cells are primarily lymphocytes (T cells, B cells and NK cells) and monocytes. PBMCs are often isolated from whole blood (collected in tubes containing an anticoagulant) by using density gradient centrifugation. Once isolated, PBMCs can be stored viably (-80oC) for future research use. 

Example PBMC Sample Requests

Cutting edge life science research often requires very specific biospecimen collection criteria.

We have the expertise to help you formulate the exact specifications to match your needs.

With our network of providers, we have the resources to supply even the most difficult to find samples.

Delivery of PBMC Samples

We know the importance of delivering samples on time and in good condition. PBMC samples are shipped on dry ice to ensure the samples remain frozen throughout the shipment. We work with several different courier companies, which allows us to choose the best option for optimal shipping conditions and delivery speed.

Our Network of Biospecimen Providers

We work with a worldwide network of biospecimen providers, including academic/hospital biobanks and a variety of other providers. We only work with biospecimen providers who meet our strict standards with regards to biospecimen quality and ethical compliance.

It is our priority to ensure that we can source all types of biospecimens. As a result, we are constantly looking to add new providers to our network. If you are a biospecimen provider, please contact us for more information about joining our network.
