Our pooled peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) are collected at FDA-licensed donor centers and further processed to remove platelets. Pooled PBMCs are prepared from four healthy donors. We test each pool for its ability to detect endotoxins and can perform additional analyses upon request. We recommend your lab further validate the use of pooled PBMCs for use in your system as required. All donors are tested for HIV, Hepatitis B and C, WNV, CMV and other blood-borne pathogens.
All 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.
