Thawing Procedure


Written by admin on February 26, 2013. Posted in Knowledgebase

Below is the recommended thawing procedure for frozen serum. This thawing procedure can be used for frozen plasma as well.

  1. Remove the serum bottles from the freezer and allow them to acclimate to room temperature for approximately 10 minutes.

  2. Place each container in a 30 to 37 C water bath or incubator. Excessive temperatures will degrade heat labile nutrients. If using a water bath, prevent the bottle caps from being completely submerged.

  3. Gently swirl or shake the bottles every 10 - 15 minutes until the serum is completely thawed.
