Charcoal Stripped Fetal Bovine Serum, Heat Inactivated 500mL

$337.50

Omega Scientific’s Charcoal Dextran-Treated Fetal Bovine serum has lower levels of hormones and steroids. The concentration of these are reduced using charcoal, dextran and NaCl until progesterone concentration is less than 0.2 ng/mL. A hormone panel is performed pre and post-treatment and reported on the COA. Processed serum is thawed and then heated in a water bath at 56°C for 30 minutes. The serum is swirled every 10 minutes to ensure proper integration of concentrated protein.
The “heat” inactivates the “complement” in the serum. Complement is defined as a series of 20 proteins produced by the liver which amplify the action of antibodies.
