Diseased Isolated Primary Cells

Our Diseased PBMCs are isolated from the peripheral blood of patients that have been diagnosed with cancer or non-cancerous diseases. The blood is collected in Heparin as an anticoagulant. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) are purified by a density gradient centrifugation (Ficoll-Paque) and are available in frozen (cryopreserved) format. Once isolated the cells are kept in cryopreservation media (CryoStor CS10).

Cryopreserved PBMCs can be stored in Liquid Nitrogen vapor phase for long-term storage. Short-term storage of cells (less than 2 weeks) at -80°C is acceptable but should be minimized to ensure maximum stability. Once thawed, samples must be used immediately, and cannot be frozen again.

Cancer Disease Types Available: Lung Cancer, Liver Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Breast Cancer, Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST), Kidney Cancer, Esophageal Cancer

Non-Cancer Disease Types Available: Parathyroid Disease, Crohn’s Disease
