Horseshoe Crabs and the Biomedical Industry FAQ

may 17, 2019 By americanpharmaceuticalreview

Horseshoe crab blood carries factors that react to antigens found on and in gram negative bacteria walls by forming a clot around it. The clot isolates the bacteria, and protects the crab from infection. The blood also begins a healing process similar to ours where we form a clot, a scab, and eventually wounds heal.
