SeraCon II Hormone Depleted diluent is well suited and widely used in assay development and manufacture. The diluent is formulated from human plasma collected in FDA-licensed facilities and tested in accordance with FDA guidelines for viral markers. The plasma is tested and found non-reactive for HBsAg, anti-HIV 1/2, anti-HCV, HIV-1 RNA and HCV RNA. Donors are tested and found negative for syphilis per FDA guidelines. The plasma is processed in an FDA-registered, ISO-certified 13485 facility and retains lot-to-lot consistency with total protein (>6.0 g/dL), fibrinogen (<25 mg dl),and cholesterol triglycerides (><20 mg dl).>

Processing includes:

  • Pooling into batches up to 1,000 Liters
  • Removal of fibrinogen
  • Removal of lipids
  • Charcoal stripped for hormone depletion
  • 0.2 µm filtered and dialyzed to mimic a serum-like state

The processing steps allow for an optically clear matrix suitable for control and calibrator production. Customization available upon request.
