Single Donor Human Buffy Coats LeukocytesIWB5ACDUNIT
Single Donor Human Buffy Coats / Leukocytes from Innovative Research are processed from a single donor whole blood collection (approximately 450ml starting volume) collected at FDA-licensed facilities located in the United States. The blood is collected into a sterile collection bag with the anticoagulant ACD (additional anticoagulant options available upon request).
Buffy coat preparations are separated from the whole blood using low-speed centrifugation. The buffy coat layer is manually extracted (no chemical separators are used) and is generally enriched for leukocytes (WBCs / white blood cells) and contain trace amounts of erythrocytes (RBCs / red blood cells) and other blood components. The resulting volume is approximately 50ml-60ml. If desired, you may further purify this preparation of leukocytes by sedimentation using Percoll gradient centrifugation.
