Uric Acid in Cell Culture

Uric acid is not a direct additive to any of the classical cell culture media. However, it is present in animal sera. Consequently, uric acid is typically present in complete serum-supplemented classical cell culture systems.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
