Our in-house biorepository and network of hospitals and clinics have blood and blood cell components from both normal and diseased human donors, including cancers, diabetes, Alzheimer's, Crohn's and other diseases.
Blood and blood cell components include whole blood, serum or plasma, red blood cells and white blood cells. We can also provide lymphocytes, including B cells, T cells, and NK cells. All blood is collected by certified phlebotomists and blood processing is performed according to strict standard operating procedures.
Blood is collected in various collection tubes, including those that preserve RNA quality for expression analysis. Creative Bioarray can also perform custom collection of any of the above products using clients' SOPs, protocols, and collection tubes.
