FBS SA, Heat Inactivated, South American

Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is rich in growth factors and is particularly low in antibodies whith negatively influence the cell culture. Heat inactivates the complement system, antibodies, and other active enzymes and is suitable for immunological studies and culturing of sensitive cells.

The carefully controlled process involves heating the serum in a shaking water bath at exactly +56°C for 30 minutes. FBS is then cooled to room temperature as quickly as possible to avoid excessive exposure to heat which can damage e.g. growth factors and vitamins and cause formation of unwanted precipitates
