Serum (off-the-clot) is derived from whole blood donations and then allowed to clot spontaneously prior to centrifugation. After separating the serum from the cellular components, it is allowed to undergo secondary clotting to ensure removal of all remaining components necessary for the clotting cascade. It is centrifuged again, allowing the remaining serum to be drawn off and packaged according to your requirements.
You may order the serum either fresh or frozen You may also order certain blood types other than AB+, such as O+, A+, etc.
