Quality is a given

For speed, scale, and multi-omic characterization, choose Discovery

When you’re part of a team bringing cell therapies to market, access to high-quality human cellular material is critical. You have many options for quality leukopaks for the research phase of allogeneic cell therapy product development, but what happens when it’s time to transition to GMP compliant products for clinical use? Or you need to scale up?



Not only do we have a large, recallable donor pool that can ensure consistency and scale from research into clinical development and manufacturing, we have world-class genomics and flow cytometry labs just down the hall from our collection facilities, enabling fast, sophisticated multi-omic characterization.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are your donors characterized?

Demographic information
  • Age
  • Height
  • Sex
  • Smoking status
  • Ethnicity
  • Blood type
  • Weight
HLA-typing to 6-digit resolution with NGS
Virus testing every 90 days
  • Hepatitis B Core Antibody (Anti-HBc EIA)
  • Hepatitis C Virus Antibody (Anti-HCV EIA)
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus Antibody (HIV 1/2 plus O)
  • Additional tests can be performed— please inquire.
Other genomic or flow cytometry characterizations available as add-on services

Your samples are all from healthy, normal donors—how do you define “normal"?

For a donor to qualify as normal, they cannot be currently diagnosed or have a history of cancer, autoimmune disease, or any major comorbidity (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.). Contact us to learn more.

Can I follow the same donor from RUO to GMP?

Yes. Discovery Life Sciences owns and controls our entire supply chain from donor recruitment, donor screening, donor collection, and logistics to the end user. As a result, our operations are highly efficient and we can ensure a good relationship with our donors, with many returning again and again. Thus, you have the potential to use the same donor from RUO (Research Use Only) collections to GMP compliant collections for clinical use.

Has COVID-19 affected your collection, processing, and/or analytical facilities?

Our collection clinic, cell processing, NGS, and flow cytometry facilities have not been negatively impacted by COVID-19. We are located in Huntsville, Alabama, and have been considered an essential business by the state, enabling our facilities to remain open and fully operational. In addition, we have been able to continuously maintain our supply chain for lab consumables, keeping all projects running on schedule.

Where are you located?

Both our research use only (“RUO”) and our Good Manufacturing Processes (“GMP”) collections are done on-site in Huntsville, AL, in two separate suites in the same building.  Our Cell Biology and HudsonAlpha Discovery, Sequencing and Bioinformatics, laboratories are also co-located in the same place, allowing for real-time fresh processing or downstream manipulation and analyses as needed.
