Serum & Serum Proteins
Hemoglobin is the major component of erythrocytes, and is responsible for the red color. Its normal concentration in erythrocytes is approximately 34%. It is the most important respiratory protein of vertebrates by virtue of its ability to transport oxygen to tissues and carries carbon dioxide away from the tissues. Anomalous globins in which various amino acids have been substitued with others, or in which certain amino acids are missing entirely from the normal sequence, comprise 153 abnormal hemoglobin configurations. Sickle cell anemia is one such configuration. In sickle cell hemoglobin, a valine residue has replaced the glutamic acid residue at position 6 in the b-chain of normal hemoglobin; the a-chain is normal.
Human Type Ab Serum (HCV, HIV, HbsAG Free), Heat Inactivated
This serum is collected from Type AB human blood.
Cellvation Cryopres Medium
Cellvation is a unique cryopreservation medium designed for optimal cell recovery and convenience. It does not contain DMSO or serum, and is scientifically engineered for Serum-Free cultures, as well as, ideally suited for all types of serum. To complete the serum-free product range, MP introduces CellVationtm, a unique cryopreservation medium which does not contain either DMSO or serum. This cell freezing medium offers the following benefits: – No presence of serum during freeze/thaw-cycles of cells adapted to serum-free growth – Absence of cytotoxicity or morphological differentiation associated with DMSO – Optimal recovery and faster cell attachment to substrate – Ready to use CellVation has a proven track record of successful freeze/thaw cycles of over 30 cell types, including primary and finite life cells as well as suspension and anchorage-dependent cell lines.
Donor Horse Serum
This serum is processed from whole blood collected from a controlled herd of young horses. Each animal is routinely screened for Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA). Donor Horse Serum is suitable for use in diagnostic assays, as a supplement in mycoplasma growth and assay media and for culturing hematopoietic stem cells and neuronal cells.
Goat Serum, Heat Inactivated
Goat Serum is used as a supplement to cell culture media. Goat Serum provides a broad spectrum of macromolecules, carrier proteins for lipoid substances and trace elements, attachment and spreading factors, low molecular weight nutrients, and hormones and growth factors that promote cell growth and health. Be certain to maintain Good Cell Culture Practice, and maintain sterility of cultures that require media supplementation.
