Blood and Tissue Sample Processing

tubes for blood samples From peripheral blood mononuclear cell isolation and cryopreservation, specific immune cell population enrichment, DNA extraction and characterization from whole blood to biopsy tissue fixation and general specimens processing, the University of Rochester Clinical Trials Processing Laboratory has a wealth of experience working with a variety of specimens. We are also experienced in handling timed samples collected as part of pharmacology studies. We can process samples within 30 minutes for drug dosing studies.

Samples types we process include:

  • Blood
    • Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC)
    • Serum and plasma isolation from blood
  • Tissue Biopsies
    • Tonsil
    • Liver
    • Endometrial
  • Compartmental Specimens
    • Nasal
    • Saliva
    • Semen
    • Urine
    • Rectal
    • Cerebral spinal fluid
    • Cervical
    • Lavages
    • Biopsies
    • Wicks
    • Brushes
  • Molecular Specimens
    • DNA extraction from whole blood or tissues specimens. Purity and concentration values are determined by NanoDrop Microvolume Spectrophotometry
