General description

FBS remains a popular media supplement because it provides a wide array of functions in cell culture. FBS delivers nutrients, growth and attachment factors and protects cells from oxidative damage and apoptosis by mechanisms that are difficult to reproduce in serum-free media (SFM) systems.

Application

FBS sourced from Australia is used in a broad range of cell culture applications. FBS provides many non-defined growth promoting and survival enhancing factor to cells in culture. Australia carries the best possible rating in relation to Geographical Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) Risk (GBR) as designated by the Scientific Steering Committee on the Geographical Risk of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy. The classification for Australia is GBR Level I.

Preparation Note

Heat inactivated for 30 minutes at 56° C.

Analysis Note

  • Endotoxin and hemoglobin tested
  • Tested for the presence of bacteria, virus, and mycoplasma
  • Triple filtered with 0.1 micron membrane under aseptic conditions
