    PLASMA is the clear, yellowish fluid portion of blood, lymph, or intramuscular fluid in which cells are suspended. It differs from serum in that it contains fibrin and other soluble clotting elements and (SERUM) is the clear yellowish fluid obtained upon separating whole blood into its solid and liquid components after it has been allowed to clot. Also called blood serum.
    Serum and plasma differs in one protein fibrin which is present in plasma and not in serum as it is used when we keep blood to clot during preparation of serum.All other protein content is same.
