Table S1. Supplies needed for collecting, processing, and storing blood. The assay section of this table lists only very basic equipment and supplies because requirements vary with the type of assay being conducted. It is best to consult someone who has conducted particular assays or consult the method sections of recently published papers. In most cases, supplies can be purchased from a general laboratory supplier (e.g., Fisher Scientific, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA; VWR International, LLC, Radnor, PA). Also, many institutions have a campus store where common laboratory and chemical supplies can be purchased.
