What is the difference between ‘animal-serum free’ and ‘animal-component free’?

All of our hPL products are derived from human platelets and therefore are naturally free form other animal derived material. No animal serum is added during the manufacture of these products.

For a product to be animal-component free, no products can be added to the product during the manufacturing process that are derived from another species. For an animal-component free option (i.e. free from non-human species), either choose Human Platelet Lysate Solution Standard with Xeno-free heparin, or Human Platelet Lysate Solution-XF (which is manufactured using Xeno-free heparin, a fully synthetic heparin product).
