Rabbit Serum is collected from healthy, USDA inspected rabbits.
The Rabbit Serum used by Biologos meets all of the USDA requirements for animal products. All Rabbit Serum is traceable back to the date and location of collection. In addition, all of the Rabbit Serum used for processing must meet Biologos’ strict quality requirements for raw material.
Approved lots of raw Rabbit Serum are thawed under controlled conditions and sterile filtered by a process that uses 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 clean room certified to maintain ISO Class 5 conditions. The Rabbit Serum is aseptically dispensed into gamma irradiated, sterile PETG or HDPE bottles. Filled containers are labeled, frozen, and then maintained at temperatures less than -5°C to preserve the product quality.
Each lot of Rabbit Serum is tested to confirm the absence of bacterial or fungal contamination. Each lot of Rabbit Serum is also tested to confirm the absence of mycoplasma contamination.
The Rabbit Serum is additionally tested for adventitious agents using modified procedures adapted from the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Section 113.53, “Requirements for Ingredients of Animal Origin”.
