Fish Cell Culture Grade Blood and Serum from Rainbow Trout, Common Carp and Atlantic Salmon.
Primacyt is extending its new portfolio by blood / serum Products.

We start with fish species, focusing on areas necessary for seafood production and cellular agriculture and farming and environmental safety,
Apart from Norwegian salmon, fish cell structures, and culture, compared to human cells, specific hematology techniques and function of white blood cells in fish are of particular interest.

There is a high number of specific content areas for research:
  • Selenium in fish nutrition and metabolism of minerals
  • Aquatic health management
  • Infection with salmonid alphavirus and antiviral defense
  • Mitogenic activity from fish embryos
  • Infectious hematopoietic necrosis
  • Study of lysozyme activity and applications of fish cell cultures to biomedical research.
