Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) South America, Charcoal Stripped – S181F

Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is the liquid part of the blood depleted of the cellular fraction and coagulation factors. It is extracted after centrifugation of coagulated fetal bovine blood collected aseptically. Sterile FBS is obtained by triple filtration of 0.1µm.

FBS contains proteins and growth factors allowing maintenance and proliferation of eukaryote cells in vitro. It also contains attachment factors that create a “coating” effect on the plastic of the support, thus increasing cell adhesion. It is an essential product in cell culture because of the different components it provides.

Biowest offers charcoal/dextran stripped FBS for researchers requiring low levels of various hormones. charcoal/dextran stripping reduces the concentration of steroid hormones in serum such as estradiol, progesterone, cortisol, testosterone, T3 and T4. This serum is useful when endogenous molecules may interfere with experimental work.

All FBS batches are tested for endotoxin and mycoplasma levels, specific viruses testing (BVD), hemoglobin and total protein rates and cell culture performance.

Origin: South America

The serum is collected or imported and treated in agreement with the European regulations.
