Horseshoe crab is one of the rarest species of crabs that are mostly located in the Atlantic Ocean between the North American coastline(Gulf coast of USA and Mexico).
Since the Covid19 outbreak in early 2020 Scientific researching brought in various kinds remedies to battle the COVID19 Pandemic.
Recent discoveries found out that horseshoe crab blood is the perfect vaccine for cure of the Corona Virus . Horseshoe crab blood has a bright blue color, with a powerful antibacterial property that has proven its value to the medical industry.
ITS COMPONENT AND QUALITY
The blood contains high quality immune cells that are very sensitive to toxic bacteria. When those cells meet invading bacteria, they clot around it and protect the rest of the horseshoe crab’s body from toxins.
Scientists used these clever blood cells to develop a test called Limulus Amebocyte Lysate, or LAL, which checks new vaccines for contamination.
Since this outbreak begun over 100 different vaccines have been created in hope to challenge outburst of COVID19. In many parts of the world, researchers are relying on horseshoe crab blood in those important tests.
And since we’ll want to vaccinate millions of people in a short space of time, horseshoe crabs would play a big part in this. Horseshoe crabs are now being used to extract the high quality blue blood and are filled in gallons and distributed to scientist for proper preparation against medical needs.
