Platelets and Whole Blood

In addition to the support of cell and gene therapy through collection of leukapheresis products, HemaCare, a Charles River Company also provides apheresis-derived platelets. Platelets are relevant for the development of new platelet testing methodologies and for the development of  in vitro diagnostic test kits. We also provide whole blood in support of research and development. Options range from complete whole blood units to small volume whole blood samples in choice of anticoagulant.
