PBMCs as tools to investigate the causes of major human diseases

PBMCs as tools to investigate the causes of major human diseases Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) are a mixed population of cells with single round nuclei. PBMCs are isolated by density centrifugation of human blood and can be further purified to isolate individual cell types such as natural killer cells, T cells, and B cells. In addition, PMBCs are […]
