BioChemed Services offers the following services to help provide you with the products that you may need that are not commercially available without further processing.
Charcoal stripped plasma and serum are processed with activated charcoal for the global removal of free, low molecular weight hormones and proteins. Protein-bound hormones are not guaranteed to be removed with this process.
BioChemed Services produces high quality serum complement products by adhering to strict collection and processing protocols, yielding high complement activity. We offer complement from humans and several of our animal species.
Plasma is converted to serum with subsequent removal of endogenous lipids. The converted serum is then treated with activated charcoal for global free hormone removal.
Processed for total immunoglobulin removal
BioChemed Services utilizes several unique and distinct processes to release cellular contents and reduce intact tissues to small particles of uniform size and consistency for various research purposes.
Peripheral blood mononuclear cells are used to measure immunological functions. Assays include proliferation, cytotoxicity and cytokine production. The use of cryopreserved PBMCs is critical both in clinical trials and biomedical research.
PBMC’s are available as Fresh or Cryopreserved, and can be obtained from whole blood donations or plasmapheresis.
Serum or plasma is processed for total protein removal of certain molecular sizes and weights, optimizing the serum or plasma for protein binding studies.
Serum is processed through a 0.22 absolute micron filtration scheme for the removal of bacteria and other bioburden.
