Central Laboratory PBMC and BMMC Services

Global processing of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMCs)

At Q2 Solutions, we offer the processing of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMCs) at our central laboratories across the world. All our processes are performed to globally harmonized standards ensuring consistently high yields, viability and recovery.

  • Our extensive lab network ensures that blood samples are routinely delivered and processed within 24 hours (96% of deliveries agreed to be shipped within 24h arrive on time)
  • We offer processing of variety of tube types and anticoagulants (Cell Preparation tube - CPT, with Sodium Heparin and Sodium Citrate tubes) and, for whole blood, ficoll gradient extraction anticoagulants including Sodium Heparin, EDTA and Acid Citrate Dextrose (ACD)
  • All our processes are performed to global Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs)
  • All our staff members are highly trained and participate regularly in global competency testing
  • Our specialty processing departments offer bespoke solutions to client requirements (such as normalization of cell numbers to specific concentrations, different freezing media, dry cell pellets, differing PBMC extraction methodologies)
  • Select laboratories are PBMC extraction qualified from Cellular Technology Limited (CTL), guaranteeing the highest standard of PBMC extraction and cryopreservation. This allows us to offer serum-free generation of PBMCs on reconstitution, ideal for functional downstream assays such as Elispot
  • From whole blood Streck tubes, we offer plasma processing for the generation of cfDNA, ctDNA and cfRNA
  • Bespoke enrichment assays are available (e.g. CD4+, CD19+, CD34+, CD138+)
  • Custom aliquoting requirements are implemented into clinical trials as appropriate
