Defibrinated horse blood for use in microbiology culture media. Defibrinated blood is collected aseptically, then processed mechanically to remove the fibrin, this prevents the blood from clotting.
Ideal for post-16 studies where exam specifications suggest making slides. Due to the pandemic cheek cell sampling is inadvisable, however blood smear slides are a great alternative. Blood samples can be stained using Leishman's stain to differentiate between white and red blood cells.
