Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS), IgG Depleted, Collected in South America
Fetal bovine serum (FBS), IgG Depleted is widely used in eukaryotic cell culture, typically as a supplement for growth media. Fetal bovine serum contains nutritional and embryonic growth promoting factors that are essential for a successful cell culture. Further, fetal bovine serum contains various small molecules, such as, e.g., amino acids, lipids, sugars, and hormones.
Fetal bovine serum (FBS) is the blood component obtained after coagulation and removal of cellular components. Its unique and comprehensive mix makes FBS one of the most important supplements for supporting cell growth and proliferation for in vitro cell culture.
Our fetal bovine serum for cell culture supports most cell lines and undergoes strict quality controls. This product is collected in South America.
To reduce/deplete the IgG content below 5 µg/ml, the FBS is processed through protein A-Sepharose columns. This process is gentle to the product and ensures an unimpaired growth promotion. The specially treated FBS has a very low IgG antibody concentration and is outstandingly suitable for hybridoma cell culture. Thereby, the IgG stripped FBS facilitates the purification of monoclonal antibodies.
