Animal Sera


  • ProductVolumeCat #
    Adult Bovine Serum 

    500 ml

    100 ml

    LTABS500

    LTABS100

    Description
  • Adult Bovine Serum of this category originates from cattle more than 12 months old. It is not only used as an addition to cell culture media, but also as a control standard and for many assays, for calibrating measurement methods or for reducing non- specific reactions in ELISA.



  • ProductVolumeCat #
    Calf Serum             

    500 ml

    100 ml

    LTCS500

    LTCS100

    Description
  • Calf Serum is obtained from animals not more than 12 months old and its protein content is significantly higher than FBS. It is suitable for robust cell lines and short-term cell cultures, which do not need to be passaged many times, as it contains fewer growth factors than FBS or serum from newborn calves. Calf Serum is a lower cost alternative to FBS and is ideally suitable for fermentations. Furthermore, it can act as a stabilizer in diagnostic assays, as a control standard or for isolating bovine proteins.



  • ProductVolumeCat #
    Donor Horse Serum  

    500 ml

    100 ml

    LTFHS500

    LTFHS100

    Description
  • Donor Calf Serum does not originate from slaughtered animals but from donor calves bred in controlled herds specifically tested on the absence of certain viruses and antibodies. It is suitable for the same applications as conventional calf serum. However, it has much lower endotoxin and hemoglobin content than serum from slaughtered animals and exhibits lower batch-to-batch variations.



    • ProductVolumeCat #
      Fetal Bovine Serum Advanced, Collected in South America

      500 ml

      100 ml

      LTFBSa-SA500

      LTFBSa-SA100

      Description
    • FBS Advanced is ideal for scientific research, calibration assays, fermentation or as stabilizer for diagnostic kits. Minimized batch-to-batch variation. After initial testing no further batch testing necessary. No batch reservation necessary. Contains no other animal sera  by-products. Suitable for all cell lines.

      Fetal Bovine Serum, Collected in South America         

      500 ml

      100 ml

      LTFBS-SA500

      LTFBS-SA100

      Description
      Fetal Bovine Serum is perfectly suitable for standard cell culture applications in academic research. It is produced by altering certain parameters to promote optimal cell growth with low batch-to-batch variation. Our FBS is available from two different origins as well as with additional treatments such as heat inactivation or gamma irradiation (upon request).



    • ProductVolumeCat #
      Fetal Bovine Serum, Collected in South America, Low Endotoxin

      500 ml

      100 ml

      LTFBS-SA500LE

      LTFBS-SA100LE

      Description
      Serum with low endotoxin content can be identified and provided upon request. The low endotoxin content is particularly favorable for culturing primary or hybridoma cells. We can also supply sera which are largely free of tetracycline or tetra-cycline derivatives (≤ 0.5 μg/ml) and are so ideally suitable for use in Tet-On/Off gene expression systems. Capricorn Scientific provides sera which testing has revealed to be particularly suitable for culturing embryonic stem cells (ES cells) or amnion and chorionic villi cells in cytogenetics.

          LTFBS-US500

          LTFBS-US100

          Description
          Fetal Bovine Serum is perfectly suitable for standard cell cul- ture applications in academic research. It is produced by altering certain parameters to promote optimal cell growth with low batch-to-batch variation. Our FBS is available from two different origins as well as with additional treatments such as heat inactivation or gamma irradiation (upon request).

                  Fetal Bovine Serum, Collected in South America, Charcoal Striped     

                  500 ml

                  100 ml

                  LTFBS-SA500CS

                  LTFBS-SA100CS

                  Description

                  During the stripping process the serum is filtered through charcoal to remove non-polar material such as estradiol, pro- gesterone, cortisol, testosterone, T3, T4 and insulin. Further more, some growth factors and cytokines are removed resulting in a suppressed cell differentiation. The concentration of salts within the serum is not affected. Charcoal stripping does not entirely eliminate the content of the steroid hormones but minimizes lot to lot serum variability.

                                  Fetal Bovine Serum, Collected in South America, Dialysed  

                                  500 ml

                                  LTFBS-SA500Di

                                  LTFBS-SA100Di

        • Description

          This process causes a significant decrease in the serum content of molecules with a molecular mass <10 kD, for example, nucleotides and amino acids. This includes dialyzing the serum against 0.15 M of physiological saline through a 10 kDa membrane. The dialyzed serum is suitable for use in incorporation studies in which the addition of labeled nucleotides or amino acids is intended to reveal information about the biochemical processes in the cell. Molecules contained in normal serum will interact with labeled molecules and thus jeopardize the success of these studies. Hormones also remove various hormones. This is an important factor in many receptor studies, as there is a risk that hormones from the serum will displace the test substances from the binding sites of the respective receptors.
