Cord Red Cells
Cord Red Cells are separated from Cord Whole Blood that Seraplex receives from FDA Registered cord blood banks. The Cord Red Cells are then pooled into 500 ml or 1,000 ml sterile Nalgene bottles. The pooled bottles are then stored at 2-8 degrees Celcius until the time of shipment to our perspective customer.
Seraplex can provide Cord Red Blood Cells for in vitro diagnostic manufacturing. All of our Cord Red Cells have been fully tested for viral markers, and we can perform NAT testing, upon request.
