what is serum?

Asked by mrinalchatterjee | 26th Sep, 2010, 03:45: PM

Expert Answer:

In blood, the serum is the component that is neither a blood cell nor a clotting factor; it is the blood plasma with the fibrinogens removed. Serum includes all proteins not used in blood clotting (coagulation) and all the electrolytes, antibodies, antigens, hormones, and any exogenous substances.
