Substance description Eel serum. Select vigorous healthy eels weighing about 1 kg. Immobilize the eel on its back, and with a scalpel dissect the abdominal wall for a 10-12 cm length from the gills. Expose the brachial artery, separate it from surrounding tissues and clamp it. Place sterile centrifugation tube against the artery and cut the artery above the tube. Collect the blood freely by using abdominal massage. Stop the tube, allow it to stand for 1-2 hours at room temperature, centrifuge at 5,000 r.p. m. for 15 min. and decant the serum. Pure eel serum should not be stored, and attenuations up to 3X(1×1000) should be prepared without delay, with isotonic sodium chloride solution. Indu, V.
