Default Serum free media - components that can be kept together



Hi,

We are just starting to use serum free media. I am wondering if their are any components of the media that can be stored together (i.e. ITS and linolelic acid); or that definately should not be stored together; so that I do not have to add each component seperately each time I make up the media.

Thanks, Sonya.

Hi Sonya,

I do not know how you can store these products whether they are together or not, but I am curious to know if you are using Serum Replacement Grade BSA in your Serum free media?

Hi Sonya,

They are similar, however the Serum Replacement Grade BSA that my company provides is specifically for use in serum-free and serum reduced cell culture applications. This BSA is highly a purified, lyophilized powder. It is formulated to optimize the products lipid profile for growth promotion, this lipid-enriched BSA is processed to provide a minimum of 98% albumin and to be essentially free of IgG. A supplementation rate ranging from .5 to 2.5 mg/mL has been effective in the production of of recombinant proteins, virus particles and monoclonal antibodies in cultured cells.
Try a free sample to see if out serum replacement grade BSA will help you with your serum free cell culture.
