Adult Rabbit Complement Adsorbed
Complement is collected from 8-12 week old rabbits and stored at -70°C. Complement is then thawed at 2-8°C, pooled, and adsorbed with human buffy coat/red blood cells (RBC) for 30 minutes at 4°C. Complement is centrifuged, bottled, and frozen at -70°C. The RBC are of mixed blood types. All units are tested by FDA approved methods for designated infectious agents.

|Suitable for functional antibody assays (SBA-Serum Bactericidal Assay, MOPA/OPA- Multiplexed /Opsonophagocytic Killing Assay) for vaccine evaluation. Complement components are extremely heat-sensitive; for best results, thaw complement on ice or in a cold water bath. Aliquots may be made and frozen at -70°C or below. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles. When a working aliquot is thawed, do not re-freeze remaining complement, but discard it.
