I've been using alot of lysate for in vitro translation, and it's getting
really expensive - 1 ml = $110.  I would like to make my own, but don't
want to hassle with the animals (time, cost, etc.).  Does anyone know if
rabbit blood is commercially available?  I'm sure it's alot cheaper than
the lysate!  I cannot find it in the catalogs I have here.  Is it
reasonable to prepare retic lysate from commercially bought blood?
