TokuKitSimplified whole blood collection for clinical trial sites
PBMCs or Whole Blood?
With whole blood you get the same quality information about non-granulocytes as with PBMCs, plus additional insights into granulocyte populations (neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils).
Collect whole blood into the provided vacutainer.

Add two mL of blood to Buffer 1, mix, and leave at room temperature for 15 min.
Step Two: Quench & Stabilize
If using SH or SE kits, add full volume to Buffer 2 and mix to complete sample preparation.
