Product Information:
Off the Clot Human Serum Double Charcoal Stripped is collected as whole blood without using an anti-coagulant. The blood is immediately centrifuged and the serum is separated from the erythrocytes. The serum is allowed to clot naturally at room temperature and then is centrifuged to remove the clot. The serum is frozen and stored at -20°C until processed. The off the clot human serum is thawed, pooled, double charcoal stripped and then 0.2µm filtered. The double charcoal treatment is a process that removes hormones and steroids. The human serum is collected from donors at FDA licensed facilities. Each donor is screened for donor eligibility according to FDA regulations. Each unit is tested for and found negative for HIV1/2-ab, HBsAg, HCV-ab, HIV-1 (NAT), HCV (NAT) and RPR. The serum is inspected for conformance to raw material specifications. The serum is processed according to a batch record. The finished product is analyzed and inspected according to quality control procedures for conformance to specifications. Records from donor unit(s) to final product are maintained according to established procedures. These records include donor records, raw material inspection records, batch records, testing records (baseline through final product), labeling records, final product inspection records and batch release records.
