General description

Animal serum is commonly used to supplement basal media formulations for the optimal growth of many cell types in vitro. Bovine Calf Serum (BCS) is collected from calves that are less than 12 months old. The serum contains approximately double the protein of fetal bovine serum (FBS). BCS will promote growth in a variety of mammalian cell lines and is often used as a cost-effective substitute for FBS.

Application

Bovine Calf Serum has been used as a basal media supplement for growing :
  • Immunocompetent cells of ileal Peyer′s patches
  • Mouse skeletal myoblasts
  • Ovarian cell lines
  • Bovine retinal pericytes
