Cord Blood Neutrophils, Frozen
Neutrophils are phagocytic granulocytes that spend most of their lives circulating in peripheral blood. Within the bloodstream they account for approximately 60% of all leukocytes. Once stimulated by a sequence of inflammatory events, neutrophils are one of the first of the inflammatory cells to migrate to areas of infection or tissue injury where they engulf bacteria, other microorganisms, and microscopic particles.
Umbilical cord blood neutrophils are isolated from whole cord blood by means of negative selection. Purity is assessed by flow cytometry prior to cryopreservation.
Cells were obtained using Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved consent forms and protocols.
