Serum has been widely used as almost a universal growth additive in cell culture for so many years. Serum is a complex organic solution, which contains proteins, polypeptides, growth factors, adhesion and spreading factors, amino acids, vitamins, lipids, hormones, protease inhibitors and many other components. Serum provides various nutrients for cell proliferation and maintenance in cell culture, and also can promote some cell functions.
Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is the most commonly used serum supplement, which can be used to culture both adhesion cells and suspension cells. Other animal serum, including calf serum, adult bovine serum, rabbit serum, rat serum, mouse serum, horse serum, porcine serum, chicken serum, goat serum, sheep serum, lamb serum, donkey serum and guinea pig serum, can also be used to culture some cells. Therefore, the use of serum does not need to optimize the medium for each cell line, saving a lot of time and energy.
