Product Description

Pooled Complement Human Serum

Innovative Research's Pooled Human Complement Serum is a complex mixture of serum proteins which are activated sequentially when antibodies in the blood of an immune animal interact with the corresponding antigens.

Complement proteins will quickly degrade if the serum is not prepared and stored correctly. Our complement-preserved serum is freshly-collected aseptically and kept cold, then flash frozen at -80 Celsius as soon as possible to prevent degradation of complement.

Pooled Human Complement Serum is collected at an FDA-licensed commercial donor center/facility within the United States. Each unit is tested and found negative for HBsAg, HCV, HIV-1, HIV-2, HIV-1Ag or HIV 1-NAT, ALT, and syphilis by FDA-approved methods.

This Innovative Research product is for in vitro research use only, is not to be consumed by animals or humans, and should be handled with general precaution as if capable of spreading infectious disease.
