Haywards Heath, UK – 28 May 2010. Sera Laboratories International Ltd (Sera Lab), the serum specialist, has developed a comprehensive range of over 1500 recombinant proteins for a variety of species including human, mouse, rat, porcine, bovine and chicken. The established collection includes cytokines, growth factors, chemokines, hormones, enzymes and viral antigens.
Applying core principles of quality products, first-class customer service and competitive pricing built up over 12 years, Sera Lab has established a regular and loyal customer base for its recombinant protein range.
Cytokines are a diverse group of soluble proteins and peptides that show multiple biological activities. They are involved in virtually all general systemic reactions as well as having important roles in embryogenesis, organ development and neurological processes. These wide-ranging roles mean that cytokine-related research is fundamental to a number of disciplines such as stem cell research, neuroscience, oncology, endocrinology, apoptosis and immunology.
With its range of highly-purified recombinant cytokines, Sera Lab has been enabling researchers to push back the boundaries of understanding in these different fields for over a decade, helping them to determine the activities, interrelationships and effects of these essential entities. In addition to cytokines, Sera Lab also supplies recombinant growth factors, chemokines, hormones and viral antigens.
Sera Lab’s recombinant proteins are mainly derived from bacterial systems, and also include mammalian, yeast, insect and plant sources. All are rigorously tested to ensure excellent quality and biological activity.
