Fetal-Calf Serum, Iron supplemented Bovine Serum
Fetal-Calf Serum, Iron supplemented Bovine Serum is a cost-effective, iron-supplemented mixture of our high-quality fetal bovine serum (FBS) and calf serum (Bovine Calf Serum, BCS). It is supplemented with additional additives and a proprietary iron complex, and matches or outperforms the cell growth capabilities of FBS in a broad range of cell lines.
Fetal bovine serum (FBS) 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.
