Human Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMCs)

Simplify the way you obtain human PBMCs by leveraging our connections and processes

Whether you need starting material for cell therapy applications, a large number of samples from both healthy individuals and geographically diverse patients, or matched samples to develop the next diagnostic tool for a particular immunological disorder, iSpecimen can help.

Through our extensive and growing worldwide network of biospecimen providers, we can tap into cancer centers, surgical departments, and more to get the samples your research requires.

Get isolated peripheral blood mononuclear cells, fresh or frozen, or process them in your lab from whole blood samples. For you, it’s simple, efficient, and hands-free.

iSpecimen simplifies the process of sourcing reliable, highly-quality PBMCs while also offering many of the following benefits:

  • Sprite

    Simplify Search and Procurement

    Easily search for attribute-specific human PBMCs samples from providers around the world through the iSpecimen Marketplace®. We’ll manage the logistics.

  • Sprite

    Prospectively Collect Samples

    If we don’t have what you’re looking for in our banked or clinical remnant offerings, we will facilitate a prospective collection.

  • Sprite

    Leverage Matched Sets

    Get a more comprehensive view of disease state and therapeutic intervention by analyzing multiple samples from one individual.

  • Sprite

    Harness Longitudinal Data

    Because of our unique relationship with providers in our network, you’ll receive samples with robust data spanning the disease continuum.

  • Sprite

    Source Beyond the US

    Our international footprint provides access to treated and untreated samples from geographically and racially diverse patient cohorts.

    Access Difficult Samples

    Advancing precision medicine can require highly specific samples that may be difficult to obtain. Fortunately, our global network expands accessibility, enabling procurement.

Ethically-Sourced Samples. Securely-Managed Data.

The iSpecimen Marketplace® manages compliance at each stage of the biospecimen procurement process, so you can confidently mitigate risks and acquire the samples you need.

  • Specimens meet all requirements for specimen use
  • De-identification of all patient data eliminates PHI leaks
  • IRB/IEC or other committee oversees specimen collection
  • Regular, thorough security audits to ensure patient privacy

Options to Meet Your Objectives

As critical components of the immune system, human PBMCs are highly useful when developing diagnostics or therapeutics.

Whether you’re looking for PBMCs isolated from whole blood or fresh leukopaks, you can likely find what you need through our network. In addition to isolated PBMCs, you can request whole blood and extract PBMCs in your lab. By coupling PBMCs with other samples from the same patient, you can analyze multiple biofluids and study a bigger picture of health and disease.

Whole Blood
  • Fresh or frozen
  • Healthy, treated, and untreated specimens
Isolated PBMCs
  • Fresh or frozen
  • Healthy, treated, and untreated specimens
Matched Sets
  • Multiple biofluids from one individual
  • Specimen types may include: urine, saliva, swab, whole blood/derivatives, or tumor adjacent tissue
