Other Bovine Serum
Several animal sera besides fetal bovine serum are used as a supplement of basal media or for other research applications. Atlanta Biologicals offers an extensive range of animal serum products, including several types of bovine sera, to meet the needs of a variety of research laboratories.
All bovine sera are also available heat inactivated. The most common objective of heat inactivation is to destroy heat-labile components such as complement that may adversely affect the growth performance of some cell cultures. The inactivation process involves raising the temperature to 56°C for 30 minutes under controlled conditions.
