Biofluids

Folio biofluids are available through both the biobank and custom procurement.  Banked fluids are frozen and stored on-site, maintained at a constant -80 C. For fresh biofluids or higher volumes, Folio can design a custom procurement utilizing your unique collection protocol and collection kits. Our IRB protocols allow us to collect volumes up to 40 mL in any tube type (K2EDTA, Lithium Heparin, Sodium Citrate, etc). Whole blood processing can be done in our CLIA laboratory to produce buffy coat, serum, PBMCs, etc. Biofluids are also available in matched sets with FFPE and Frozen Tissue.
