From:Joe Nocito

my interpretation of ASRs is this.  When I was at the AFIP, we had our own
rabbit that was used for cytokeratin.  We would bleed the rabbit on a
monthly basis, spin down to obtain the serum, place the serum through column
chromatography.  This is an antibody that we created in house, not
manufactured by a company.
    I just went through a CAP inspection in January and this question was
raised, but the inspector was satisfied when I told him this story.  The
checklist does state, though, that a list of all antibodies used must be
available, not just ASRs.  Hope this helps
