Newborn Calf Serum (NBCS)
Newborn calf serum offers a lower cost alternative to FBS whilst providing the same nutrients and growth factors. It is useful in applications where the cell line is robust. Newborn Calf Serum contains higher protein and IgG levels and lower levels of growth factors when compared to Fetal Bovine Serum. Newborn serum is available sourced from audited sources in either Australia or New Zealand.
Newborn calf serum is collected from calves that are up to 10/20 days old that have no known reportable diseases.
