Whole Blood Specifications & Handling Information
Whole blood derivatives
We can source fresh whole blood as well as blood derivatives such as serum, plasma, and buffy coat as clinical remnants, banked research samples, or custom research collections.
Optimal storage & shipping conditions
Exacting requirements drive the need for highly specific storage and shipping logistics. Researchers can select specific collection and storage containers, as well as stringent storage and shipping temperatures from -80 degrees for longer term stability to ambient temperatures for fresh, same day deliveries.
Protocol for healthy normals
Each Donor is assessed for medication, lifestyle, and medical history. Additionally, samples may undergo testing for HBV, HCV, HIV, and an expanded panel of infectious diseases. For any collection, iSpecimen can help you obtain samples with a volume of 1 mL to 500 mL per donor.
