Origin: Corning serum products are collected from controlled standing herds of animals located in the U.S. or from worldwide collection sites such as Mexico, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Central America, and South America.
Collection and Processing: Blood is aseptically collected according to industry standards. Serum is separated from the collected blood by refrigerated centrifugation and frozen immediately. Only serum that meets strict specifications is approved for sale after production.
Filtration: The raw pooled serum is filtered through a triple series of 0.1µm sterilizing grade filters. The sterile filtered serum is put through a polishing filter before final packaging. The serum is dispensed in a controlled environment following aseptic practices.
Packaging: The final product is tested for physiochemical properties and bacterial endotoxin per the current US Pharmacopeia. To maintain sterility, products are filled in bottles with Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) of 10-6.
