Why is heparin not required for the FD and XF products?

Heparin is an anti-coagulant that prevents the fibrinogen in human platelet lysate from clotting in the cell culture medium during cell expansion. Both Human Platelet Lysate XF and Human Platelet Lysate FD are fibrinogen-depleted and so do not require the addition of heparin in the cell culture media.
