Whole blood-derived buffy coat products are rich in white blood cells and platelets. Buffy coats are a good source of cells for in vitro research applications. Due to the diversity of white blood cell populations in buffy coat products, further processing and characterization is typically required.
Buffy Coat products are produced from 500 mL whole blood units collected using sodium citrate, dextrose, citric acid (CPD) anticoagulant. These products are red cell-reduced and contain leukocyte populations such as granulocytes, platelets, lymphocytes and other mononuclear cells. Each buffy coat is suspended in roughly 50 mL of plasma and contains approximately 500 million leukocytes/unit. Specific cell type isolation and cryopreservation from buffy coat products are available upon request.
