Conversant Bio Publishes Guide to Peripheral Blood Cells

Global Leader in Providing High-Quality Cell Samples Offers Valuable Information for Researchers Working with PBMCs

HUNTSVILLE, AL--(Marketwired - December 08, 2015) - Conversant Bio, a global leader in supplying the highest-quality human tissue and viable cell samples, today announced it is publishing a guide to the use of peripheral blood in research environments. The e-book Accelerate Your Research with Peripheral Blood Cells, is available as a free download at

Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) are among the most versatile in the human blood system. PBMCs are critical components of the immune system, and their value to drug and biomedical researchers is unquestioned. Traditional methods to isolate these cells might not always be the best for some projects. Instead of choosing a cryopreserved sample, some research teams may need to source peripheral blood using project specific protocols. Conversant Bio's new e-book offers details about PBMCs and why they are so important to researchers. Among the guide's features:

  • A breakdown of several various white blood cells
  • Four downstream applications that are possible using PBMCs
  • Three key criteria to ensure top-quality blood samples
  • Three tips for sourcing biospecimens

"Research teams working with PBMCs are discovering the versatility of these cells in better understanding the immune system," says Luke Doiron, chief commercial officer for Conversant Bio. "Our new guide provides valuable information to researchers and physicians about sourcing and using peripheral blood for their important projects."
