Francelab is offering a wide range of sera, cell culture media for Research and Development and Quality Control laboratories in the field of Lifesciences and Biopharmaceuticals.
Bovine serum albumin (BSA) is commonly used in cell culture protocols, particularly where protein supplementation is necessary and the other components of serum are unwanted. In cell culture, its main role is as a carrier of small molecules. Because of its negative charge, Bovine Serum Albumin binds water, salts, fatty acids, vitamins and hormones, then carries these bound components between tissues and cells.
Biowest Fetal Bovine Serum is derived from clotted whole blood aseptically collected from foetus via cardiac puncture. Each manufactured batch is rigorously controlled, from the collection of serum and throughout all stages of its treatment and production through to final packaging on our premises. The Fetal Bovine Serum is analyzed, classified, and tested by Biowest before shipment to customers all over the world. Each batch is delivered with a Certificate of Analysis.
