serum-free media

A well-defined and controlled culture media that has been processed in some form (e.g., filtered to remove inhibitors and/or growth factors). Serum-free media are not necessarily protein-free or chemically defined; most are optimised for the growth requirements of cell-specific applications.

This novel supplement can be added to an optimized serum free media for greater protein yield or used as a culture media in place of FBS or other media.
Meanwhile, focused on media regulation where the authors compared the expression of IGF genes in serum supplemented and serum free media in relation to cell proliferation [6].
To complement use of serum free media, research has been focused on the development of cell lines that are cabaple of autocrine growth of cells in culture, rendering the reduced cost (of not having to supply serum as sources of IGF) (Sunstrom et al.
After the first 24 h, culture medium was replaced with serum free media containing protease free BSA (0.
Changes in glycosylation patterns have also been demonstrated between serum free media and media with FBS (3).
Various successful serum free media formulations have been developed are commercially available today.
The PBL harvest was then washed twice with Hanks buffered salt solution (HBSS) and resuspended in AIM-V serum free media at a final concentration of 3x[10.
In a market exhibiting low to high single digit percentage growth, depending upon the segment surveyed, Percepta reports the most attractive growth opportunities lie in stem cell culture reagents, growth and attachment factors and serum free media.
However, serum free media and growth, as well as attachment factors, are expected to see increased use in 2013 because current non-users are planning to include them in their workflow.
