Donor Horse Serum
Donor Horse Serum is an alternative to bovine serum for growth factors and hormones in cell culture studies. It is broadly used as a blocking agent in immunoassays.
Donor Horse Serum contains more immunoglobulins than Fetal Bovine Serum and has an increased protein content. It is a cost-effective alternative to Fetal Bovine Serum. Donor Horse Serum involves a controlled collection of the raw serum. In contrast to slaughtered horses, donor horse serum has a lower endotoxin content and exhibits a lower level of batch to batch variation. It is used for diagnostic assays, supplementation during mycoplasma growth or for cultivation of hematopoietic stem cells and neuronal cells.
