Re: stripped serum preparation.
Just a bit of advice: The fines of activated charcoal are really a pain
to remove by filtration (serum + carbon clogs filters). You would be
well advised to consider pre-filters and also, remove fines from the
charcoal before you begin. You might want to pellet the carbon in a
centrifuge and wash the pellet a few times. In this way, you can remove
the bulk of the carbon from the serum by centrifugation, followed by
filtration to sterilize.
