Diagram outlines methods used to simulate various sample handling techniques representative of those encountered in clinical immunology, including: blood shipping temperature (20 °C or 4 °C), peripheral blood mononuclear cell isolation method (Ficoll gradient, collagenase plus percoll gradient, whole blood lysis, leukocyte filtration), and immune cell types of interest (CD8+ T cells, CD4+ T cells, granulocytes or monocytes)
