It is frequently used in combination with bovine sera or independently to supplement media for mammalian cell culture. DHS is often utilized in bovine virus research applications since it does not contain bovine antibodies. It is also used as a supplement in some bacteriological media. Donor Horse Serum, Heat Inactivated is treated by heat inactivation where serum is exposed to a temperature of 56 °C for 30 minutes under controlled conditions.
