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 for adequate growth and differentiation. 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. Fetal Bovine Serum is the preferred serum supplement for cell culture applications due to its high levels of nutrients and optimal combination of growth factors.
