Cambridge Bioscience has a close collaboration with Research Donors, a London-based clinic dedicated to the collection and processing of human whole blood for research purposes. Research Donors is a HTA licenced, ISO 9001 2015 certified establishment with Research Ethics (REC) approval as a Research Tissue bank, as well as participating in the UK NEQAS QA scheme.
Blood serum is the clear fluid that remains after the cellular components and clotting factors have been removed from whole blood after clotting. Our standard human fresh and frozen serum is produced from whole blood using clot-activating silica tubes.
Our serum collection is based on each researcher's exact needs with a choice of volume, shipment temperature and delivery on either the same or next day after collection. Alternatively, there is the option to choose from our wide selection of frozen stock serum samples.
