Description

Wholesale Horseshoe Crab Blood Extract at low prices

Horseshoe crabs use hemoglobin to carry oxygen through their blood. Because of the copper present in hemocyanin, their blood is blue. … Amebocytes from the blood of L. Polyphemus are used to make Limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL), which is used for the detection of bacterial endorphins in medical applications.
Their distinctive blue blood is used to detect dangerous Gram-negative bacteria such as E. coli in injectable drugs such as insulin, implantable medical devices such as knee replacements, and hospital instruments such as scalpels and IVs. Components of this crab blood have a unique and invaluable talent for finding infection, and that has driven up an insatiable demand. Every year the medical testing industry catches a half-million horseshoe crabs to sample their blood.
But that demand cannot climb forever. There’s a growing concern among scientists that the biomedical industry’s bleeding of these crabs may be endangering a creature that’s been around since dinosaur days. There are currently no quotas on how many crabs one can bleed because biomedical laboratories drain only a third of the crab’s blood, then put them back into the water, alive. But no one really knows what happens to the crabs once they’re slipped back into the sea. Do they survive? Are they ever the same?

Uses/Importance of Horseshoe crab blood to Medicine

Horseshoe crab blood runs blue and opaque, like antifreeze mixed with milk. And for what exactly do humans need the blood of a living fossil? A sort of witchcraft, you might say, for it literally keeps people alive. Horseshoe-crab blood is exquisitely sensitive to toxins from bacteria. It is used to test for contamination during the manufacture of anything that might go inside the human body: every shot, every IV drip, and every implanted medical device.

Hundreds of thousands of horseshoe crabs (Limulus polyphemus) are bled each year to produce a substance called Limulus Amebocyte Lysate (LAL). LAL is used to test intravenous drugs and medical equipment for the presence of bacteria and endotoxin, a poison found in many bacteria.

Horseshoe crabs use hemocyanin to carry oxygen through their blood. Because of the copper present in hemocyanin, their blood is blue. This amazing blue blood contains a special clotting agent called LAL (Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate) which is used to test the purity of medicines.

How The horseshoe crab Blood is used to fight cancer cells

The Horseshoe crab blood can easily invading microbes and cancer cells. Horseshoe crabs have evolved to produce a class of proteins to combat microbial infections called host defense peptides, which are small, positively-charged proteins capable of killing bacteria and cancer cells. While different host defense peptides have different mechanisms of action, many of them kill bacteria by interacting with the bacterium’s negatively charged outer membrane. The horseshoe crab blood peptide pierces the bacterium’s outer membrane, causing the cell to burst open and die, just like popping a water balloon with a needle.
