Guinea Pig Complement
Pooled guinea pig serum is rapidly collected and frozen-preserving complement activity-and lyophilized. It is specially collected and processed under "Cold Room" conditions which maintains maximum complement activity. 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.
