Ceraplex, Premium Cell Culture Supplement(10X)

Manual  Flyers  MSDS 

Fetal Bovine Serum(FBS) has been long used as a supplement for tissue culture media, supplying growth factors and attachment factors essential for the culturing and proliferation of cells in vitro. Although the major constitutes of serum are known such as albumin and tranferrin, some of the minor components and their effect on cell growth have not been fully determined. These minor components include nutrients such as amino acids, nucleotides, sugars, growth factors, hormons, minerals, and lipids.

FBS is commercially avaliable from many manufacturers, and because cells grown in vitro are highly sensitive, researchers usually tests specific batches to check for suitability for their specific cell type. When changing from batch to batch it is usual to adapt the cells to the new batch of material, for example, by mixig 50% of the old serum with 50% of the new serum and allowing the cells to acclimatize to the new material.

Also downstream purification is the leading disadvantage to using FBS in cell culture media. For example, monoclonal antibody production and recombinant protein secretion both require purification to remove serum-derived gamma-globulin from the media.

Ceraplex is the most innovative cell culture supplement including several components, and is intended to provide high performance and cost-effective option for researchers without changing any current cell culture system. Researchers can reduce FBS up to 1.5% - 3% for the growth and maintenance of a broad spectrum of established cell lines with Ceraplex added to culture media. This advantage dramatically gives researchers to minimize FBS's batch-to-batch variation which could result in change cell growth pattern and morphology.

Another advantage of Ceraplex is that researchers can make Serum-Free basal media using Ceraplex without changing any culture environments. Simply add Ceraplex to the current culture media without FBS. This will replace many of specialized expensive Serum-Free media.
