Blood Products

Cambridge Bioscience offers scientists across Europe access to fresh human blood biospecimens designed for use in a wide range of biomedical research applications. From a London-based donor centre and laboratory we can collect, process, test and ship fresh blood samples in a wide range of formats.

For many research applications speed of sample processing is critical, and we are able to deliver our blood samples across Europe on the day following venepuncture. In the UK same day delivery is possible depending on location.

We have access to a large diverse pool of healthy, paid volunteers, from whom we collect whole blood in volumes up to 495ml per donation. All samples are collected with a comprehensive informed consent that explicitly permits the use of blood samples and derivatives in a wide range of research applications, including commercial research and research involving genetic testing. All samples are tested for a range of infectious diseases prior to release.

Our offering includes:

Whole Blood
From a single tube of whole blood in a specific anticoagulant tube, up to a full bag of blood we collect the exact volume of blood you need from donors best suited to your study and deliver it within precisely defined timeframes at the best temperature for your requirements.

Buffy Coat
We routinely process whole blood units into buffy coat preparations which are used as a source of PBMCs by our clients. We can also process smaller volumes of blood from blood collection tubes into buffy coat..

We can either collect a specific volume of blood in the anticoagulant of your choice and prepare plasma, or you can source plasma samples that we have banked from a wide selection of donors..

We can either collect a specific volume of blood and prepare serum to suit your needs, or you can select from serum samples that we have previously banked.

We prepare PBMCs from whole units of blood within a very short interval following venepuncture (typically processing begins within 1 hour and is complete within 5 hours). PBMCs are produced using density centrifugation, characterized and shipped either fresh or frozen.

Custom Services
We can develop specific processes to suit your exact requirements, so please get in contact if there is something specific you need for your research.

In addition to fresh peripheral blood, we are also able to provide cord blood products including buffy coats, purified cord blood CD34+ HSCs & cord tissue-derived MSCs.
