Why should I use serum-free media?


Serum-free media offer the customer better lot-to-lot consistency, because they contain fewer undefined components than media containing undefined components, such as serum. The end-user also does not need to take time to qualify lots of FBS for activity. Serum-free media are lower in protein content than medium supplemented with serum, which can simplify the purification process and increase the yield of the end-product.
