A variety of cell types can be successfully propagated in Donor Horse Serum (DHS). 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.

Cells in culture require a source of nutrition, typically provided by cell culture media. The majority of these media require the addition of animal serum for cells to obtain the proper nutrients to grow adequately. Serum is an important source of proteins, lipids, vitamins, amino acids, salts, minerals, attachment factors, growth factors, hormones, and other components essential for cell growth.

Donor Horse Serum manufactured by Atlanta Biologicals is derived from healthy, live animals greater than 12 months of age. The donor animals receive regular veterinary inspection and care, and are kept in carefully managed and strictly segregated herds. The donor animals are all gelded draft horses in order to limit lot-to-lot hormone level variations
