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.

Ham's F-10 (10X Solution) Without L-Glutamine, Without Sodium Bicarbonate, With 12.4 mg/L Phenol Red

Originally, Ham's Nutrient Mixtures were developed for the clonal growth of several Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) clone cells, Hela cells and mouse L-cells. Both F-10 and F-12 are formulated for use with or without serum, depending on the type of cells being cultured. F-10 has demonstrated satisfactory growth of human diploid cells, white blood cells for chromosomal analysis and primary rat, rabbit and chicken tissue explants. Ham's F-12 is well suited for the growth of primary rat hepatocytes and prostate epithelial cells. It is also the medium of choice for toxicity assays using CHO cells. MP also offers Ham's F-12 supplemented with 25 mM HEPES for improved buffering in the optimum pH range of 7.2-7.4. F12K is a modification of Ham's F-12 and Coon's F-12 with increased amino acid and pyruvate concentrations. Additionally, the salts have been modifed (Konigsbergs). F12K has been developed for culturing differentiated rat and chicken cells, as well as, primary human liver cells.

1X Mccoy 5A Medium, Iwakata & Grace Modification With L-Glutamine

McCoy's 5A medium, as modified by Iwakata and Grace, is identical to RPMI 1629. Originally in 1959, McCoy and his colleagues described the amino acid requirements for the in vitro culturing of Novikoff Hepatoma cells. Basal Medium 5A was modified to create what is known as McCoy's 5A Medium for these investigations. Hsu and Kellogg further demonstrated the use of this medium to support the growth of primary cultures derived from normal bone marrow, testes, mouse kidney, skin, gingiva, rat embryo and other tissues. MP's medium is additionally suited for the propagation of leukocytes, biopsy tissues and the most demanding primary and continuous cell types. It is also available as modified by Park and Terasaki. The Park and Terasaki Modification (PT) differs from the Iwakata and Grace Modication (IG) in that PT contains slightly modified levels of L-glutamic acid, glycine, L-hydroxyproline, L-proline, L-serine, L-threonine, L-tryptophan, and L-valine. The PT modification also contains the additions of penicillin, dihydrostreptomycin sulfate, gentamycin, fetal bovine serum and HEPES.

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.
