Human Normal Peripheral Blood Neutrophils
Neutrophils are the most abundant type of granulocytes in the body and compose 40-75% of white blood cells in the peripheral blood. Neutrophils are part of the innate immune system. Their nucleus is characteristically divided into three segments. Upon infection, Neutrophils are rapidly recruited to either release antibacterial agents or engulf the invaders directly. In disease, they constitute the major cell type involved in acute and some chronic inflammation.
Our Human Normal Peripheral Blood Neutrophils are isolated from peripheral blood granulocytes by indirect immunomagnetic selection. All peripheral blood is collected in acid-citrate-dextrose formula A (ACDA) by leukapheresis from fully consented IRB approved donors that are tested negative for HIV, HBV, and HCV.
