Could You Benefit from Research-Grade Leukopaks?

Immunology and oncology researchers use leukopaks for a steady supply of effector cells as raw materials for their research and development efforts. Leukopaks are generally collected from healthy donors and shipped fresh overnight, containing between 5 and 20 billion white blood cells depending on the volume of blood processed from the donor during leukapheresis. Leukopaks […]
