Atlanta Biologicals brand Newborn Calf Serum (NBC, NBCS) provides many of the same nutrients as Fetal Bovine Serum, but has slightly higher protein levels. For routine maintenance of select cell lines and where low antibody concentrations are not critical, Newborn Calf Serum is often used as a lower-priced alternative to FBS.

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.

Newborn Bovine Calf Serum is collected from healthy, inspected bovine calves that are less than 20 days of age and manufactured under stringent collection and processing standards.
