You can trust Azenta Life Sciences to manage your samples from collection to storage. By joining with GENEWIZ, we now offer a complete sample management solution to support your clinical trials.

Our peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) isolation service ensures rapid isolation of immune cells from whole blood or buffy coat while maintaining robust QC standards. Isolated PBMCs are frozen and stored using alcohol-free, controlled-rate freezing that results in high yield/high viability samples for downstream analysis. GENEWIZ’s next generation and Sanger-based sequencing solutions offer several workflows to analyze your PBMCs.
