Product Details

Newborn Calf Serum Summary

Newborn Calf Serum (NBC, NBCS) provides many of the same nutrients as Fetal Bovine Serum, but has slightly higher protein levels.

Why Use Newborn Calf Serum?

Newborn Bovine Calf Serum is collected from healthy, inspected bovine calves that are less than 14 days of age and manufactured under stringent collection and processing standards. It is used for routine maintenance of select cell lines and where low antibody concentrations are not critical. Newborn Calf Serum is often used as a lower-priced alternative to FBS.

Serum products should be stored and handled correctly to assure long-term stability and to preserve growth performance consistency throughout its shelf-life. In addition, heat inactivation of serum is frequently desired to inactivate complement within the serum. Below are protocol links for serum storage/handling and heat inactivation.
