Formula Fed Bovine Calf Serum - Gamma Irradiated (New)

Formula Fed Bovine Calf Serum - Gamma Irradiated (New)

RMBIO produces high quality, low hemoglobin, US sourced calf serum for use in diagnostics and cell culture media. Bovine calf serum provides the start for successful cell growth at a fraction of the price of Fetal Bovine Serum due to its availability. Our calf serum is then irradiated at an industry standard dose of 25-40kGy.

Gamma Irradiation 101
Gamma irradiation is a physical inactivation approach used to achieve pathogen reduction in the serum. This mitigates risk from low-level contaminants that may not be detected through viral or mycoplasma testing. RMBIO serum is gamma irradiated via controlled exposure to Cobalt 60 at an industry standard dose of 25-40kGy. Most typical viral contaminants of bovine serum are readily inactivated at this irradiation range. Advantages of gamma irradiation include:

  • No potential for residual contaminants
  • Widely accepted by pharmaceutical and research industries
  • Accepted by regulatory agencies
  • Minimal effect on product performance
  • Effective virus inactivation
