Blood tissue is part liquid and part solid. The liquid consists of plasma, while the solid component consists of platelets, red blood cells, and white blood cells.
Serum is the clear, straw-colored, liquid portion of blood plasma that does not contain fibrinogen or blood cells and remains fluid after clotting.
Plasma is the liquid component of blood. It accounts for over half of an individual's total blood volume.
Extracts are made by taking tissues or fluids and extracting something from them. They are available as pastes, powders, and fluids.
Animal tissue and organs are available for your research needs.
