RE: [Histonet] normal serum preparation

From:Tony Henwood


Collect the blood in a sterile 10ml plain centrifuge tube.
Allow to clot (5-10 minutes should do it)
Centrifuge 10min 1500rpm in a standard centrifuge
Collect supernatant (the serum)

Remember do not add anti-coagulant (eg EDTA, Citrate or Heparin). When you
centrifuge the blood, you will have plasma.

Ask for advice from your Haematology Department.

Dear Histonetters...

Does anybody know how can I prepare the normal serum from fresh animal blood
for immunohistochemistry? 

Thanks in advance...
