PBMC Isolation and Cryopreservation

The core offers human peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) isolation, counting and cryopreservation with plasma and serum storage at minus 112 F (minus 80 C) for research and clinical research studies. PBMCs are isolated using Ficoll-Paque gradient centrifugation, counted and cryopreserved in 10 percent DMSO and fetal bovine serum and stored at minus 310 F (minus 190 C) in a liquid nitrogen tank. Plasma can be aliquoted in volumes you specify and stored at minus 80 C for long-term storage.
