Donating a blood sample

needleIf you wish to donate a blood sample we can arrange an appointment for you with a research nurse. You only need to provide a small sample of less than 25 ml (2 tablespoons) to join the Cambridge BioResource. This will not affect your next donation if you are a registered blood donor.

Your blood is used to isolate your DNA and other components, such as sera and plasma, which can be used for measuring biomarkers (indicators of cellular function and health status).
