TransFix Formats


TransFix is a patented, CE marked cellular stabilisation solution that preserves cell surface antigens for a minimum of 10 days at 2-22°C and for 4 days at 37°C (1). TransFix is added to whole blood samples at the time of venepuncture, and provides stabilisation so that extended storage and/or transportation can be achieved thus allowing greater flexibility for testing and potential reduction in costs.

TransFix® is used to stabilise whole blood for flow cytometry and blood donor screening, plus Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) (2), Bone Marrow and Fine Needle Aspirates. It is available in several formats including blood or CSF sample storage tubes, direct draw vacuum blood collection tubes, and bulk volumes.
