PBMC and Clinical Sample Processing Services

Consistent clinical sample processing is critical for biomarker-driven studies, as complex assays are highly dependent on sample quality
Precision’s PBMC, blood, and tissue processing services safeguard the integrity of your biomarker assay data through the use of robust, standardized sample and PBMC processing procedures. These procedures are strictly followed at every study site and Precision lab around the world. In addition, we ensure rapid turnaround times and can complete PBMC processing to accommodate tight project timelines.
