Serum is the blood component remaining after coagulation and removal of the cellular components usually through centrifugation.
Serum is a complex mixture of proteins including growth factors, amino acids and hormones. This complicated mixture makes serum to be one of the most important supplements to support cells to grow and proliferate in vitro cell culture.
Serana cell culture media is manufactured under stringent standard operating procedures.
A variety of tests are performed including endotoxin, pH value, and osmolality on each lot of 0.1 µm sterile filtered media. Only batches that pass Serana’s rigorous quality control procedures are released for sale. Detailed certificates of analysis are prepared and made available for each lot produced.
Serana offers a variety of products for both cell detachment and growth additives.
All our products are cell-culture tested and allow you to adjust the environment of your cell culture in order to control the activity occurring in the cells you are cultivating.
Cell and tissue culture buffers are an energy source. They also keep ideal osmotic pressure present and maintain proper pH levels.
Used predominately in biomolecular research, the dry and liquid substances have a balanced inorganic salt composition. Lower concentration options permit equilibration with air in a closed system, while higher salt concentration options keep gaseous phases in equilibrium. Cell growth is optimal when plated in a nutritional medium that has been buffered.
