Introducing Flourish Research – an optimized clinical trial solution.
Our team of experts has leveraged decades of experience to streamline every aspect of the clinical trial journey and ensure excellent execution.
Flourish Research gives you the optimal site locations, investigators, and patients ready to go. Our experienced teams and proven processes adapt to your needs.
Why Partner with Flourish?
When you partner with Flourish, you get access to all of our sites and a single point of contact who consolidates all activities throughout the entire lifecycle of the study. This streamlined process lets you start work immediately and guarantees a smooth, efficient study.
When you work with individual clinical research sites that have no governing body, you have to navigate disparate processes, budgets, and administrative steps required for site selection. This hinders the launch and progress of your study, muddying the process and adding extra work on your end.

Flourish Onsite PBMC Labs
Flourish sites in Texas, Illinois, and Florida have developed the internal capability and experience for sponsor-requested processing and onsite PBMC collection, processing, counting, long-term storage, and shipping. Processing takes place in a PBMC-dedicated, isolated, limited-access laboratory facility.
Multiple laboratory staff have been trained, qualified, and certified by major global pharmaceutical companies. Our teams have experience with both BD Vacutainer ® CPT™ Cell Preparation Tube and Sigma-Aldrich ACCUSPIN™ Tube methodologies for PBMC cell isolation.
Note, that in addition to supporting the sites’ vaccine clinical trial programs and other clinical trial activities, our PMBC labs are able to serve as an external, local laboratory for processing of samples collected from other research clinics in the region.
What are PBMCs?
Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) are key components of the body’s complex and dynamic immune system. A mononuclear cell is characterized by a single round nucleus and is comprised of Lymphocytes, monocytes, NK cells, dendritic cells, and Mesenchymal Stem cells. Lymphocyte subset populations include T and B cells. These cells have important immunological roles in defending the body from infection, cancer, and other foreign invaders, making them ideal specimens to study immunological responses.
Some key applications of PBMCs in research include:
Toxicity screening, drug discovery
Thus, PBMCs serve as a powerful platform for a wide spectrum of research and clinical applications.
