Now our customers can receive primary cells from bone marrow and peripheral blood
that are shipped within hours of collection
They are the cells that spawn our oxygen-carrying red blood cells, disease-fighting white blood cells and clot-forming platelets. They are found in the bone marrow and, in smaller numbers, in the circulating blood.
They are also critical to researchers doing some of the most important work in medicine, including the discovery, development and validation of new immunotherapies, cellular therapies, vaccines, other drugs and diagnostic assays.
iSpecimen Founder and CEO Christopher Ianelli, M.D., Ph.D., says it best: “Viable primary hematopoietic cells are essential to some of the most promising and exciting work that researchers and life science organizations are doing today. It’s important for our community to have ready access to the broadest and highest-quality selection of these important biospecimens as part of a comprehensive marketplace for all their needs.”
iSpecimen is now a leading provider of fresh primary human hematopoietic cells from bone marrow and peripheral (circulating) blood. As we announced this week, our customers can turn to us for prospectively collected mobilized and non-mobilized leukopheresis collections, unprocessed bone marrow, and whole blood from consented, healthy adult participants under IRB-approved collection protocols. All collections are performed at FDA-registered collection sites in the United States.
Researchers can specify donor criteria, including age, gender, ethnicity, height, weight, BMI, and other criteria. Samples can also be sourced based on HLA type, ABO blood type, and CMV status. Longitudinal collections from repeat donors are also available. You can find additional details here.
With this substantial enhancement of our already broad-based and industry-leading supplier network, we continue our mission of quickly and easily connecting researchers and the human biospecimens they need for their important work – a procurement process that until now has sapped too much time and effort from research.
