General description

Horse serum produced from adult horses is homogeneous and has low levels of polyamine oxidase. It is metabolically stable and favours cell proliferation. Horse serum is an alternative to bovine serum and is a source of growth factors and hormones.


Horse serum has been used as a supplement to the culture medium in pheochromocytoma cell cultures, cortical slice cultures, retinal cells, and myotubes.
