Bone Marrow CD34 depleted mononuclear cells (BMMCs) are isolated by depleting the CD34 cells using immunomagnetic anti-CD34 microbeads.
Use fresh CD34 depleted mononuclear cells immediately upon receipt. Be sure to remove HypoThermosol® prior to use. If not used immediately, temporarily store cells at 0-4°C or freeze for long-term storage.
For cryopreserved CD34 depleted mononuclear cells, either prepare cells for long-term storage in Liquid Nitrogen vapor phase or thaw for use. Storage in liquid phase nitrogen is NOT recommended. Short-term storage of cells (less than 2 weeks) at -80°C is acceptable but should be minimized to ensure maximum stability. Once thawed, samples must be used immediately.
Testing: Donors are tested for HBV, HCV, HIV, HTLV, WNV, Trypanasoma cruzi, and Syphilis.
