Bovine research samples have been used for a vast array of applications ranging from reproductive research to vaccine and infectious disease studies.

Red blood cells (also referred to as erythrocytes) are the most common type of blood cell making up nearly 45% of the volume of blood. Mature red blood cells are flexible and oval biconcave disks. While they lack a cell nucleus and most organelles, they serve as the primary transporter for hemoglobin, an iron-containing biomolecule that can bind oxygen.
