Application: FBS sourced from Canada is used in a broad range of cell culture applications. FBS provides many non-defined growth promoting and survival enhancing factors to cells in culture. It was used as a supplement for different cell cultures.
General description: FBS blocks reactive oxygen species generation, which otherwise is not eliminated in serum-free media (SFM) systems. It also protects cells from oxidative damage and apoptosis.
