Guinea Pig Serum Complement

For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Guinea pig serum characterized for both classical and alternative pathway activity. Guinea pig serum complement is suitable for in vitro experiments relating to complement activation. It has been widely used in biomaterials research and pharmaceutical development. It is ideal for experiments and assays for which a high level of in vitro complement activity is necessary or a low level of complement activation fragments is required.

This product is intended for use in an experimental setting specifically for monitoring in vitro complement activation. It is therefore appropriate for use in biocompatibility experiments including drug development, biomaterials testing and other applications where the effects of complement need to be monitored. This product contains no EDTA.
