Fetal bovine serum contains an abundance of critical proteins and components that are crucial for promoting optimal cellular proliferation in ex vivo applications. However, increasing recognition of the risks of unwanted contaminants in serum sourced from animals has driven a push to reduce or eliminate the use of serum in primary cell-culture systems. To avoid loss of cell-culture performance associated with reducing or eliminating serum, it is necessary to add a defined supplement containing recombinant versions of the critical serum components. Download the 2019 InVitria ITSE + A application note to discover how this product enables the reduction of serum and its associated contaminants from primary cell culture and leads to improved ex vivo cellular analyses.
