Human buffy coat

Cambridge Bioscience has a close collaboration with an HTA-licensed, London-based clinic dedicated to the collection and processing of human blood for research purposes. Our buffy coats are prepared according to each researcher's exact requirements, with delivery available on the same or next day after collection, offering access to human buffy coat whenever your research demands.

Buffy coat is prepared by the centrifugation of anticoagulated whole blood and it consists of a concentrated suspension of white blood cells and platelets. It is frequently used to isolate PBMCs and other specific white blood cell populations.
