Porcine serum is a nutrient rich fluid derived from porcine blood plasma. Porcine Serum, like other animal sera, can be used as a supplement to basal growth medium in cell culture and is an important component of cell culture media. It serves as a source for amino acids, proteins, fat-soluble vitamins (such as A, D, E, and K), carbohydrates, lipids, hormones, growth factors, minerals, and additional trace elements.

Porcine Serum Uses
Porcine Serum Storage & Handing
The Porcine Serum can be supplied in gamma irradiated, sterile PETG or HDPE bottles and LDPE bioprocess bags (20-100 liter capacity). We recommend that the serum be stored frozen at a temperature of -5°C to -20°C. Multiple freeze-thaw cycles of the 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.
How is Porcine Serum Made?
Porcine Serum is is collected from healthy pigs that are 1 year old or younger, then prepared and tested.
Biologos’ 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.
The packaging process begins with 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 (FED STD 209E equivalent Class 100) cleanroom conditions. The 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.
