Fetal bovine serum for T cell culture

Selected for maximum cytokine production in T cell cultures

Batch selected for cytokine production in T cell cultures
Get experiments running sooner - eliminate testing multiple lots of standard FBS

Does not require heat inactivation

Consistently supports in vitro recall responses of T cells isolated from immunized mice

Consistently supports generation of encephalitogenic T cells in vitro

All FBS is not equally able to support cytokine production in T cell cultures. This product is selected by in vitro testing to support maximum cytokine production by antigen-specific T cells.

Fetal bovine serum (FBS) - sometimes known as fetal calf serum (FCS) - is used as a tissue culture media supplement for generation of encephalitogenic T cells or to evaluate cellular immune responses.

Hooke's FBS is batch selected by in vitro testing to support high levels of cytokine production in T cell cultures.
