1.A study was conducted to determine the stability of 14 bovine serum constituents during storage for 28 days at 2 or -10 °. The constituents assayed in fresh serum and at 1, 3, 5, 7, 10, 14, 17, 21 and 28 d of storage included: glucose, cholesterol, total bilirubin, glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase, alkaline phosphatase, lactic dehydrogenase, total protein, creatinine, blood urea nitrogen, calcium, inorganic phosphorus, sodium, potassium and chloride.2.There was an unexpected rise in serum lactic dehydrogenase activity after 24 h of storage. The results of this study indicate that storing bovine serum at -10° for 14 to 28 d prior to analysis would be satisfactory for conducting routine analyses of the constituents studied.
