Iron Fortified, Gamma Irradiated, and Heat Inactivated Calf Serum
RMBIO produces US origin iron supplemented calf serum for use in cell culture media. Supplementing iron to calf serum can enhance serum transferrin levels and be a much less expensive alternative to FBS. Heat inactivation helps protect against growth inhibiting immune factors like serum complement that may be present in the serum. The serum is then gamma irradiated at an industry standard dose of 25-40kGy.
