Cell culture grade human AB serum for human cell propagation

Human AB Serum is an AB serum that is graded for cell culture and can be tailored as per the user's requirements.


Size: 100 mL

Human AB Serum is sourced from healthy male donors of the AB serotype. Both off-the-clot and plasma-derived serum is collected at facilities that follow FDA guidance in the USA. The plasma-derived serum is obtained by converting plasma from Human AB donors through plasmapheresis. The plasma is then converted to serum via defibrination.

In compliance with current FDA requirements, all donor units are screened for viral markers at the collection facility and are determined to be non-reactive. Before being distributed, the finished serum product is subjected to a rigorous quality control testing process.

Key benefits

  • BioIVT US-sourced material, using only Male AB donors, meets the health requirements established by 21CFR 610.40 Chapter F, subpart E.
  • Human AB serum is a vital cell culture reagent providing growth factors, vitamins and nutrients, as well as trace elements and transport factors ensuring a suitable environment for the propagation of a variety of human cell types.
  • Human AB serum has been proven to grow many human cell lines faster and with a smaller percentage of serum required than when using mixed blood type human serum.
  • Human AB serum, converted from plasma, is an economical product and more widely available than off-clot serum.
