Fetal Bovine Serum

Fetal Bovine Serum to ensure high quality and consistency essential for successful cell culture

Serum is commonly used as a supplement to basal growth medium in cell culture. The most common type of serum used for cell growth is foetal bovine serum (FBS), also known as foetal calf serum (FCS).

In cell culture, serum provides a wide variety of macromolecular proteins, low molecular weight nutrients, carrier proteins for water – insoluble components, and other compounds necessary for in vitro growth of cells, such as hormones and attachment factors. In addition to this, serum also adds buffering capacity to the medium and binds or neutralises components that may be toxic.

Since Biological Industries are one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of FBS through out the world, they are able to provide serum from a range of origins and lot sizes.
