serum-free media


Also found in: Acronyms.

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.
