Antiserum determines the antibody level or trail filtration by the performance of taking blood sample from a laboratory animal. The blood is allowed to clot, then the serum is removed for testing.

These antibodies are capable of binding with the antigenic determinant (epitope) that had caused their formation in some manner.Pathaner Hoga Mari
