Endotoxins in serum

Endotoxins levels in serum for cell culture are important for pharmaceutical, veterinary and clinical manufacture and also in some research applications where cells are sensitive to the presence of endotoxins.

It is important that serum, specifically Foetal Bovine serum (FBS), is collected in such a way to ensure that the serum maintains low levels of endotoxin.  Endotoxin may be an indicator of the care taken during the collection and processing of the material.
