Serum

High Quality and Consistent Animal Sera for Optimal Cell Culture

Animal sera, whether from bovine, human or other animal source, provides all essential nutrients such as proteins, attachment factors, growth factors, amino acids, trace elements, vitamins, lipids and hormones for healthy cell culture growth. It also plays an essential role in regulating cell osmotic pressure and membrane permeability, serving as a carrier for enzymes, micronutrients, lipids and trace elements into the cell. Therefore, animal serum has been widely used as a nutrient boost for most cell
culture applications in the life sciences. However, if the serum is not obtained from a reliable source, contamination can pose a serious threat to successful cell culture. The varied nature of animal products is also a concern, which introduces challenges with variability, standardization, country of origin, and specifications.

To meet and exceed quality control standards for high performance in cell culture, all sera are tested by independent third-party laboratories for the presence of endotoxins, mycoplasma, bacteria, fungi and viruses; for total protein concentration, including hemoglobin content; and for the growth of cells. A certificate of analysis for each lot is available upon request.

MP Biomedicals animal sera ensures:

  • High performance for broad cell types
  • Low endotoxin levels
  • Free of mycoplasma contamination
  • Free of disease from animal sources
  • Minimized lot-to-lot variability
  • Sterility
  • Country of origin and traceability
