Maternal Blood, Fresh, Streck®
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that contains red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. It is essential for transporting nutrients, oxygen, and waste as well as fighting infection and regulating body temperature. In addition, cell-free fetal DNA is also found in maternal blood and can be used to develop useful screens for detecting fetal genetic disorders during pregnancy.
Whole human maternal blood is collected at varying gestations and demographics in 10 mL aliquots into Streck tubes. Maternal donors are recallable after 8 weeks of prior donation. IDS testing can be requested for each donor.
Collected from IRB consented donors.
