Hi All,

I am wondering what is the best method of sending live PBMCs oversea? I am looking into methods of sending PBMCs isolated from whole blood from China to Canada and the cells will be used for short term cultures (ie ELISpot). I have heard that putting cells in RPMI+20%DMSO and freeze by liquid nitrogen and ship with dry ice won't work? Anybody here have experiences with this kind of situation? What would be the cheapest and effective way to do this?

I would assume shipping whole blood is NOT possible?
