How Can iSpecimen’s Inventory of Buffy Coat Samples Help Advance Research Projects?

High concentration of genomic DNA

Buffy coat contains a high amount of gDNA per mL, providing the right material for research projects involving genomic prep.

High concentration of leukocytes

iSpecimen offers buffy coat samples containing up to 10-20 times more Leukocytes than whole blood, ideal for condensing large sample volumes and reducing downstream cell separation handling.

Decreased sample variability

By supplying researchers with buffy coat samples, iSpecimen aids in eliminating the need for a donor-specific soluble serum factor because serum has already been extracted from the sample. From here, donor-to-donor variability is decreased significantly.
