Cell Culture Media: Why Go Serum-Free?
On 15 October, Lonza will host a free 60-minute webinar that will address current concerns regarding the use of serum in cell culture media, explore viable alternatives and provide guidance on how to adapt cells to a serum-free environment.
In cell biology, cells are commonly grown in medium supplemented with serum. Serum is a highly variable, undefined product, which impacts the reliability, reproducibility and consistency of scientific results. In order to eliminate these unwanted influences, more and more scientists are considering serum-free cell culturing.
In the webinar titled "Cell culture media: Why go serum-free?", Nicole Wellens, Lonza Cell Culture Specialist, will discuss the following topics:
- Scientific concerns about cell culturing with serum
- The case for serum-free cell culture
- How to switch from serum to serum-free culturing with little effort
