Fetal Bovine Serum


Manufactured by Capricorn Scientific GmbH

   Home    

Our sera are only sourced from selected countries, supported with certification of origin, and extensively cell culture tested as well as tested for bacterial and fungal contamination, viruses and mycoplasma. Fetal Bovine Serum is sterile filtered at 0.1 µm whereas all other sera at 0.2 µm. Lot-to-lot consistency is assured by a true pool processing technique.

Serum is the blood component obtained after coagulation and removal of cellular components. Besides serum proteins it contains growth factors, amino acids and hormones, etc. This comprehensive mix makes serum one of the most important supplements for supporting cell growth and proliferation in vitro cell culture. Of special interest is fetal bovine serum (FBS). It is especially rich in growth factors and low in antibodies, which may influence the cell culture work. For standard cell culture applications in academic research FBS is perfectly suitable. It is produced by altering certain parameters to promote optimal cell growth with low batch-to-batch variation, mainly from EU-approved material. Our FBS is available from two different origins as well as with additional treatments such as heat inactivation and gamma irradiation (on request).

FBS Advanced:  Raw FBS is a natural product obtained from bovine blood showing significant batch variations due to various environmental influences e.g. nutrition or health state of animals. Batch-to-batch variations of FBS can have major impacts on the reproducibility of scientific results. Capricorn Scientific’s sophisticated treatment during pooling and filtering significantly reduces batch-to-batch variation in FBS Advanced. Once successfully tested on a cell line, usually no further batch testing is necessary.
