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 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. Animal sera has been widely used as a nutrient boost for most cell culture applications in the life sciences.

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. Additional testing is performed for total protein concentration (including hemoglobin content) and cell growth. A certificate of analysis for each lot is available upon request. Our animal sera ensure:

  • 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

Fetal Bovine Serum

Fetal bovine serum (FBS) is one of the most highly implemented serum supplements for in vitro cell culture. This is due to its complex array of protein components, the presence of optimal cell growth factors, low endotoxin levels and low hemoglobin concentration, all of which are required by cells to sustain, grow and divide. FBS offers excellent value for basic cell culture applications, specialty research and bioprocessing. Our quality assurance standards ensure reliable and consistent delivery of high quality FBS from raw material to final product. Heat inactivated CELLect™ FBS Gold is the industry standard for FBS supplements.

Sera from Other Animals

Although fetal bovine serum is the most commonly used sera for cell culture, several other animal sera alternatives can be selected based on cell origin, cross-reactivity, performance requirements and costs, including human serum, newborn calf serum, horse serum, goat serum, rabbit serum, porcine serum and chicken serum. A wide spectrum of animal sera are available to meet your cell culture needs for both research and bioprocessing applications.

MEM Amino Acids (50X Solution) Without L-Glutamine

In many cell culture applications using defined media for the in vitro cultivation of cells, the addition of supplemental nutrients and reagents is required. Additives such as antibiotics, buffers, and stains are frequently used to prevent bacterial contamination, control pH, and visibly monitor media conditions. Other supplements such as amino acids and vitamins are useful for enriched media beyond their normal concentrations. Attachment factors and transport factors are added to growth media to facilitate rapid cell propagation and enhance proper cell metabolism. Still other media supplements may be added to create conditions which will elicit specific cellular responses and effects, such as altered protein biosynthesis, accelerated antibody production and secretion, toxic response mechanisms, etc. As a result, the availability of a wide variety of media supplements is desirable when designing cell culture experiments.

CELLect Fetal Bovine Serum, Silver, Mexico Origin

CELLect™ Silver is collected from a U.S.D.A. regulated and monitored abbatoir by technicians who work "on-site" where the fetal blood is aseptically collected via cardiac puncture. This raw material is transported to the production facility where it undergoes sterilization via filtration with multiple 0.1 micron filters. The care and diligence taken in handling the fetal serum minimizes cell lysis and other detrimental factors thereby reducing possible lysozyme and hemoglobin contamination. This translates into increased performance in the final product. It is supplied sterile, with no detectable mycoplasma or viral infection.

CELLect Fetal Bovine Serum, Gold, Us Origin

CELLect™ Gold is collected from a U.S.D.A. regulated and monitored abattoir by technicians who work "on-site" where the fetal blood is aseptically collected via cardiac puncture. This raw material is transported to the production facility where it undergoes sterilization via filtration through multiple 0.1 micron filters. The care and diligence taken in handling the fetal serum minimizes cell lysis and other detrimental factors thereby reducing possible lysozyme and hemoglobin contamination. This translates into increased performance in the final product. It is superior for hybridoma cloning. It is supplied sterile, with no detectable mycoplasma or viral infection. Serum is an extremely complex mixture of many small and large biomolecules with different, physiologically balanced growth-promoting and growth inhibiting activities.

CELLect Fetal Bovine Serum, Gold, Heat Inactivated

Fetal bovine serum has been the most widely used growth supplement for cell culture media because of its high content of embryonic growth-promoting factors. When used at appropriate concentrations, it supplies many defined and undefined components that have been shown to satisfy specific metabolic requirements for the culture of cells in vitro.
