FBS, Dialyzed, USDA approved, STERILE
Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is a complex mixture with low and high molecular weight biomolecules exhibiting optimal growth-enhancing and growth-suppressing functions. FBS contains molecules, such as growth factors, proteins, vitamins, trace elements, hormones etc. These molecules are important for the growth and maintenance of cells. It is a common supplement for cell culture media. FBS remains a popular media supplement because it provides a wide array of functions in cell culture. FBS delivers nutrients, growth and attachment factors and protects cells from oxidative damage and apoptosis by mechanisms that are difficult to reproduce in serum-free media (SFM) systems.
Dialyzed FBS is manufactured using a process that significantly reduces the concentrations of small (low molecular weight) molecules such as amino acids, hormones, and cytokines while avoiding the precipitation of serum proteins. Dialyzed fetal bovine serum is recommended for special applications where the normal concentrations of small molecules in FBS may be of concern, for example, in studies requiring higher levels of control over certain small molecules in the cell culture environment.
