Cells in culture require a source of nutrition, typically provided by cell culture media. The majority of these media require the addition of animal serum for cells to obtain the proper nutrients to grow adequately. Serum is an important source of proteins, lipids, vitamins, amino acids, salts, minerals, attachment factors, growth factors, hormones, and other components essential for cell growth.
Bovine calf serum (BCS, Calf Serum) is obtained from healthy, inspected calves 20 days to 12 months of age. Although Bovine Calf Serum has a lower nutritional value than Fetal Bovine Serum or Newborn Bovine Calf Serum, it can be used for a variety of less demanding cell lines.
