Neutrophils are a type of leukocyte that mediate immune responses against infectious microorganisms. Neutrophils, along with eosinophils and basophils, constitute a group of leukocytes known as granulocytes. Approximately 50 to 80 percent of all leukocytes in the human body are neutrophils.
Our neutrophils are collected at FDA-licensed donor centers and further processed at our cell isolation laboratory. Each product is characterized by flow cytometry to ensure a highly pure and viable cell population. All donors are tested for HIV, Hepatitis B and C, WNV, CMV and other blood-borne pathogens.
Biospecimens are obtained from properly consented donors. We conform to HIPAA standards to protect the privacy of the donor’s personal health information.
Human Material Precaution
It is best to use caution when handling any human cells. We recommend all human cells should be handled as if potentially infectious following biosafety level 2 procedures. Even with infectious virus assays or viral antigen assays, a negative test result may leave open the possible existence of latent viruses.
