Isolation of leukocytes from full-thickness excisional wounds has proven to be a difficult process that results in poor cell yield and holds significant limitations for functional assays. Given the increased interest in the isolation, characterization and functional measurements of wound-derived cell populations, herein we describe a method for preparing wound cell suspensions with an improved yield that enables both phenotypic and functional assessments.
