Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) are isolated from blood collected in FDA-registered collection centres, from IRB consented healthy human donors and following cGMP and cGTP collection guidelines.
- Cryopreserved in CryoStor® CS10 media

A mononuclear cell is any cell that has a single round nucleus; examples of a mononuclear cell are lymphocytes, monocytes, and dendritic cells. These cells are critical components of the immune system which are involved in both humoral and cell-mediated immunity. The mononuclear cell is a widely used product in research and clinical applications such as in microbiology, virology, oncology, vaccine development, transplant and regenerative biology, and toxicology.
Storage: Either prepare cells for long term storage in liquid nitrogen vapor phase or thaw for use. Storage in liquid phase nitrogen is NOT recommended. Short term storage of cells (less than 2 weeks) at −80 °C is acceptable, but should be minimised to ensure maximum stability. Once thawed, samples must be used immediately.
Pozor: Intended for research use only and not for direct therapeutic or diagnostic use in human or animals, or for further manufacturing of therapeutic products or devices.
