Serum / Serum Substitute
In cell culturing, nutritional supplement is necessary for maintaining the survival, proliferation, and function of cells. Generally, fetal bovine serum (FBS) is used as such nutritional supplement. However, for the use of pluripotent stem cells such as ES cells and iPS cells in regenerative medicine, FBS is not suitable in view of safety and reproducibility.
FUJIFILM Wako provides serum replacement products that can be used in regenerative medicine.
