What We Do


Cardinal Biologicals is able to meet stringent custom collections to meet customer specifications.

Besides human organs, tissues, plasmas & serums, other products include a large variety of human biologicals including, placentas, umbilical cords, umbilical cord serum/plasma, amniotic fluid, seminal fluid, CSF, ascites fluid, synovial fluid, pleural fluid, saliva, tears, and various types of human urine. We also provide human tissue microscopic slides.

While our main focus is to supply raw human biologicals, we are able to initial process some material to meet research specification that may assist to isolate and/or study cells, proteins, enzymes, hormones and tumor markers.

All applicable FDA virologies are performed on all blood products. In accordance with the 1996 legislation (HIPAA), our customers will have assurance that all human biologicals received from Cardinal Biologicals, Inc. are properly de-identified.

Our staff has the experience, expertise and understand the complex ethical and legal regulations surrounding the donation and collection process.
