What exactly is serum?

Serum is the liquid fraction of clotted whole blood. Unlike plasma, no anti-coagulant will have been added to the blood following collection from the animal. Serum is centrifuged to separate the clot from the liquid phase, resulting in a product that is depleted of cells, fibrin and clotting factors.
