-Peripheral blood: 5.0 mL of peripheral blood collected from adults, (2.0-3.0 mL from children) in a heparin tube (green cap). Mix well after collection (by inverting the tube) to avoid cellular aggregates. To be received by the laboratory within 24h from collection. Storage and transportation at room temperature (15-280C).

 

-Bone marrow: 1.0-2.0 mL of bone marrow collected from adults (1.0 mL from children) in a heparin tube (green cap). Mix well after collection (by inverting the tube) to avoid cellular aggregates. To be received by the laboratory within 24h from collection. Storage and transportation at room temperature (15-280C).

 

-Solid tumor: 1.0 cm3 of tissue from surgical biopsy collected in a sterile tube with 5 mL of normal saline. To be received by the laboratory within 24h from collection. Storage and transportation at room temperature (15-280C).

 

-Amniotic Fluid: 20-25ml of amniotic fluid collected through transabdominal puncture under sterile conditions at 17-19 weeks of gestation. Place in a sterile universal container. To be received by the laboratory within 24h from collection. Storage and transportation at room temperature (15-280C).

 

-Miscarriage Products: 2-3 cm3 of fetal tissue to be collected. Rinse the tissue with normal saline and place it in a sterile universal container with 5-8ml of normal saline. To be received by the laboratory within 24h from collection. Storage and transportation at room temperature (15-280C).

 

-ChorionicVilli: : 10-15 mg of chorionic villi collected through transabdominal puncture under sterile conditions at 10-12 weeks of gestation.
