Chicken Serum

Premium Quality Chicken Serum- Biologos

Information and Uses


Chicken Serum is a nutrient-rich fluid derived from the blood of healthy chickens- but does not contain red blood cells or other clotting components. The composition of chicken serum allows for it to be used in biological and chemical research applications. Those applications include, but are not limited to:

  • An antibody diluent
  • Serial cultivation
  • Supplement in cell culture media

Biologos offers standard and customized serum that is collected from healthy chickens, then prepared, and tested.

Our quality control testing, tests for microbiological abnormalities, such as the presence of bacterial, fungal, and mycoplasma contamination and viruses. Serum is also tested for adventitious agents using modified procedures from the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Section 113.53 (“Requirements for Ingredients of Animal Origin”). Once the absence of contamination has been confirmed and approved, batches of serum are prepared for the packaging and distribution process.

This process begins with the serum being thawed under controlled conditions and sterile filtered. Sterile filtration involves the serums being filtered through a series of filters in descending pore size, utilizing 0.2 micron filters for the final filtration step. Filling takes place in a laminar flow hood and a certified clean room to maintain ISO Class 5 conditions. The Chicken Serum is aseptically dispensed into gamma irradiated, sterile PETG or HDPE bottles and LDPE bioprocess bags (20-100 liter capacity). Filled containers are then labeled, frozen, and maintained at temperatures less than -5°C to preserve the product quality.

Each batch of serum meets the USDA standards for animal products, Biologos’ standard for raw materials, is traceable to date and collection location, and are processed using:

  • Sterile filtering
  • Irradiation
  • Heat inactivation

Biologos’ serums are trusted and have been used in the advancements of animal health and diagnostic labs globally for more than 40 years.

Shipping

Chicken Serum is shipped frozen by truck or next day air in insulated containers packed with dry ice.

Storage and Handling

Chicken Serum can be supplied in gamma irradiated, sterile PETG or HDPE bottles and LDPE bioprocess bags (20-100 liter capacity). We recommend that the Chicken Serum be stored frozen at a temperature of -5°C to -20°C. Multiple freeze-thaw cycles of the Chicken Serum should be avoided as this may lead to deterioration of the product. Always use aseptic techniques when handling the serum and aliquot into sterile containers.

The composition of chicken serum allows for it to be used in biological and chemical research applications. Chicken Serum, like other animal sera, can be used as a supplement to basal growth medium in cell culture. Serum is an important component of cell culture media because it provides nourishment to support cells. Other applications include, but are not limited to:

  • An antibody diluent
  • Serial cultivation
  • Supplement in cell culture media
