Seram can be used as supplements to cell culture media and to provide nutrients, protein and other elements which help cells survive, grow and divide. Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is the ideal cell growth supplement and generally preferred over other types of cell culture sera. Its high levels of nutrients and optimal combination of growth factors makes Fetal Bovine Serum the most effective cell growth promoter for virtually any cell culture system. Human serum is utilized in various research applications, such as human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing and immunohistochemical staining, but is also frequently used as a supplement to culture media. Although Bovine Calf Serum has a lower nutritional value than Fetal Bovine Serum or Newborn Bovine Calf Serum, it can be used for a variety of less demanding cell lines. Horse serum supports the growth of a wide variety of mammalian cells, providing a cost-effective alternative for FBS. Horse serum is often used in bovine virus research applications since it does not contain bovine antibodies.
