Whole Blood, Serum, and Plasma

Blood products are collected from a wide range of clinical conditions.

All blood products are kept frozen and never allowed to thaw.

All blood products are collected under IRB approval by certified phlebotomists and blood processing is done under strict Standard Operating Procedures (SOP).

Whole Blood

ProteoGenex can collect up to 40 mL of whole blood per donor.

  • Whole Blood Collection Tube Types:
  • K2- or K3-EDTA tubes
  • SST tubes

ProteoGenex can also provide buffy coat specimens pulled from fractionated blood.

We can also provide whole blood with matching Fresh Frozen or FFPE Tissues.

Whole blood is not collected for regular storage in our Biorepository, but we can easily set up a Custom Collection to meet our customers’ needs.

Serum is usually processed from whole blood 2 hours after collection (maximum 4 hours).

Different aliquot sizes can be collected under a Custom Collection.

Plasma is usually processed from whole blood 2 hours after collection (maximum 4 hours).

We can also provide plasma with matching Fresh Frozen or FFPE Tissues.

Standard serum aliquot is 1mL. We do not pool or re-aliquot inventory specimens.
