Peripheral Blood Primary Cells

Your source for quality fresh and cryopreserved human cells

Human peripheral blood contains a vast array of hematopoietic cells involved in defending the body against infection and disease. Each primary cell type has a specialized function and plays a pivotal role in human health. The study of these cells allows insight into ways of enhancing treatment and development of cures for infectious and chronic diseases and is fundamental to the advancement of cellular and regenerative medicine.

CGT Global offers a wide variety of human peripheral blood primary cells. Peripheral blood is collected at one of our Stem Cell Collection Centers from healthy IRB consented donors that are negative for HBV, HCV, and HIV and sent to our FDA-registered cell manufacturing facility for processing to a primary cell population. Cell attributes, such as phenotype, viability, purity, and cell count, are checked to meet rigorous standards ensuring high-quality cells before leaving the facility.

Your Cells, Your Way!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you isolate multiple cell types from a single donor?

Yes, depending on the cell types.

Is same day delivery available?

Yes, certain locations can receive same day courier delivery. We can also provide same day air shipments.

How to thaw CGT Global primary cells for optimal viability?

Primary cells are very sensitive to many aspects of the thawing procedure, such as heat, DMSO, agitation, and high centripetal forces. Obtaining high viability after thawing human primary cells can be difficult if not performed quickly and with good laboratory techniques. At CGT Global, our laboratory technicians have years of experience handling and thawing frozen human primary cells and have designed a procedure that will help you obtain the highest viability of your cells.
