BioIVT has access to unique patient populations through remnant or prospective collections. While we offer samples from normal donors, we can also access donors with a variety of disease indications including COPD, Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Cystic Fibrosis.

For research applications, bronchoalveolar lavage fluid allows for the sampling of innate (macrophages), cellular (B- and T-cells) and humoral (immunoglobulin) responses within the lung. In clinical applications, it is widely used for diagnostics work-up of infectious and non-infectious interstitial lung diseases.

Features & Benefits

  • Ability to customize the sample based on any requirements or protocol needs
