History

The International Serum Industry Association was formed in June 2006 with a specific focus on the Serum Industry. Since that time the scope of the Association has broadened to include all animal derived products used in the multibillion dollar life science and biomedical sectors.The Association does not currently include food applications or human derived materials within its sphere of influence.
