Cord Blood Plasma, Frozen
Plasma is the fluid portion of the blood that allows the transport of leukocytes (lymphocytes, monocytes, dendritic cells, and granulocytes), platelets, and red blood cells to or from the tissues of the body. Plasma helps maintain blood pressure and regulates body temperature. It is composed of proteins, inorganic salts, nutrients, gases, and waste material from the cells as well as various hormones and enzymes.
StemExpress offers plasma from human umbilical cord blood form single or pooled donors (custom order). Plasma is fractionated from cord blood by centrifugation and stored at -80°C. The harvested plasma will contain a reduced platelet count.
Cord blood is collected from mothers that are negative for HIV, HepB, and HepC during pregnancy. Testing on cord blood can be provided as a custom order.
