Effect of the filter number on the capture of PBMCs by the LeukoCatch. Indicated blood cells were counted by the Coulter LH750 hematology analyzer, using human peripheral blood samples (N = 3) passed once through the LeukoCatch equipped with 0-10 filters. In the 5 × 5 sample, the blood sample was passed 5 times through a 5-filtered LeukoCatch. NT, non-treated blood samples; WBC, white blood cell; LY#, lymphocyte number; MO#, monocyte number; NE#, neutrophil number; PLT, platelet; and RBC, red blood cell.
