Due to increasing demand of Fetal bovine Serum world-wide, price fluctuation in the market, and ethical issues it had become essential to develop an economical serum-free and serum alternative or replacement medium. Bodinco can now through our partner, Biological Industries, provide an entire line of serum-free (SF), xeno-free (XF) and animal components-free (ACF) cell culture media and reagents.
The benefits that come with SF, XF and ACF are:
- Media consistency,
- Formulation is standardized,
- No more extensive testing for each lot,
- No more price instability,
- Reduced risk of contamination by serum-borne adventitious agents in cell culture processes,
- Keeping up with latest developments.
In addition, in the case of developing or moving your stem cell research into clinical trials, it is required to use SF, XF and ACF product as Fetal bovine Serum cannot guarantee consistency and standardization. Starting with these products will save you time, money and extra hassle in testing.
For more information please see the catalogue and feel free to contact us for any questions you may have.
