Rabbit Serum

Product Overview


Rabbit Serum is a nutrient-rich fluid derived from rabbit’s blood, but does not contain red blood cells or other clotting components. The composition of rabbit serum makes it the ideal blocking agent for biological and chemical research applications.

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

  • Sterile filtering
  • Irradiation
  • Heat inactivation

Rabbit Serum applications include, but are not limited to:

  • A cell culture medium (sterile serum only)
  • Disease diagnosis
  • Vaccine development

What is Rabbit Serum?

Rabbit Serum is a nutrient-rich fluid derived from rabbit’s blood, but does not contain red blood cells or other clotting components. The composition of rabbit serum makes it the ideal blocking agent for biological and chemical research applications.

How is Rabbit Serum Made?

Rabbit Serum is obtained from healthy rabbits, 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 conditions. The serum is aseptically dispensed into gamma irradiated, sterile PETG or HDPE bottles. Filled containers are then labeled, frozen, and maintained at temperatures less than -5°C to preserve the product quality.

Rabbit Serum Storage and Handling

Rabbit Serum can be supplied in gamma irradiated, sterile PETG or HDPE bottles. 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.

Rabbit Serum Uses
