Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is the most common supplement used in cell culture. Its use at specific concentrations provides many compounds that have been shown to satisfy specific metabolic requirements for the culture of cells, including various growth promoting factors, along with a variety of undefined components. Heating serum under very controlled parameters can inactivate various inhibitors of cell growth and factors that would interfere with immunoassays. Heat inactivation is recommended for serum used in embryonic stem cell culture to maintain long-term viability.
