Human platelet lysate is a growth factor-rich cell culture supplement derived from healthy donor human platelets at FDA-licensed donor centers.
Multiple donor units are pooled during manufacturing to minimize lot-to-lot variability. The addition of an anticoagulant is required to inhibit coagulation.
All donors are tested for HIV, Hepatitis B and C, WNV, CMV, and other blood-borne pathogens.
Biospecimens are obtained from properly consented donors. We conform to HIPAA standards to protect the privacy of the donor’s personal health information.
Human Material Precaution
It is best to use caution when handling any human cells or cell lysate. We recommend all biospecimens should be handled as if potentially infectious following biosafety level 2 procedures.
Even with infectious virus assays or viral antigen assays, a negative test result may leave open the possible existence of latent viruses.
