Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) for cell culture

Buy Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) & Other Animal Sera for Cell Culture

Fetal bovine serum (FBS) is 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. Explore our FBS products below. For more information about serum, visit our serum FAQ page.or request a serum sample. You can also request a cell culture techniques handbook, troubleshoot common problems encountered in a cell culture lab, or see our protocols for subculture of adherent cell or semi-adherent cell lines, or culturing of Mouse Emryonic Stem Cells (ES), Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC), or HL-1 cardiomyocytes. See protocols for cell freezing or thawing, and for charcoal-stripping FBS, .
