Samples Available for Blood Stabilisation

TransFix® is a CE marked cellular stabilisation solution that when added to Whole Blood, Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF), Bone Marrow and Fine Needle Aspirates, preserves cell surface antigens for a minimum of 10 days. TransFix® is added to whole blood samples at the time of venepuncture and provides stabilisation to permit extended storage and/or transportation. This allows greater flexibility for testing and potential reduction in costs e.g. by allowing samples to be batched.
TransFix®, from Cytomark, is available in several formats: blood or CSF sample storage tubes, direct draw vacuum blood collection tubes and in bulk volumes. Samples are available for all products, please request your samples by calling +44 (0) 1280 827460 or emailing
