Serum

Serum is the clear yellowish fluid obtained upon separating whole blood into its solid and liquid components after it has been allowed to clot. It is used for many cell culture applications due to its high level of nutrients and growth factors.

Bovine Serum is a purified derivative of blood from cows and provides nutrients and growth factors for cell culture. Irvine Scientific offers certified USA origin, sterile-filtered, Fetal, Newborn, and Formula-Fed Calf Bovine Serum.


Human Serum Albumin (HSA) is the most abundant protein in human plasma and is often used in cell culture applications. Irvine Scientific’s HSA consists of HSA from therapeutic-grade source material (100mg/mL) in a saline solution.
