Leukopaks

Versiti’s peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) product is an enriched, fresh leukapheresis product composed of high concentrations of monocytes and lymphocytes, but may also contain lower concentrations of platelets, plasma and red cells. Specific product characterization available upon request to meet unique study needs.


Blood Products to Meet Your Needs

Prospective products from our biospecimen registry can be selected to fit certain criteria in order to meet your project needs. Our healthy donor bank database includes information like high-resolution HLA typing, CMV status, and other common donor selection demographics.

As a blood bank, our commitment first and foremost is to be good stewards of the precious gifts from our donors. To that end, we offer waste and other blood products that are not eligible for transfusion but are excellent, high-quality starting materials for research or manufacturing.


 
 
Non-Transfusable Products for Research
As a blood center, Versiti is committed to stewardship of the precious gift that our donors provide. We make products that have expired or are found to be unsuitable for transfusion available to help advance new frontiers in science and medicine.
