Iron Fortified 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 in many cases be a much less expensive alternative to FBS in promoting cell growth and its effectiveness.

Product Details

RMBIO produces US origin iron supplemented calf serum for use in cell culture media. Iron is essential for cell respiration and metabolism; cells cannot survive or proliferate without it. Supplementing calf serum with iron not only increases iron concentrations, but also enhances serum transferrin, enabling this serum to bind three to four times more iron than Fetal Bovine Serum. This results in cell growth rates comparable to FBS at a fraction of the cost, making iron fortified calf serum an ideal FBS alternative.
