Erythrocyte Lysis Solution (ELS)
Product Code: GGS-JL-009

Erythrocyte Lysis Solution is a simple pretreatment of heavily blood-stained amniotic fluid samples which quickly removes heavy red blood cell (erythrocyte) contamination. Unlike many similar products used in molecular biology that lysis red blood cells, this product is extremely gentle in its action and is specially suited for cell culture work. It is well documented that high concentrations of red blood cells inhibit growth of cells from amniotic fluid by restricting colony size. This product will not prevent maternal contamination from occurring because it has no effect on white blood cells.
