Dundee Cell Products
Dundee Cell Products offer a range of dialysed foetal bovine serum (FBS) and dialysed horse serum (HS). Standard filtered serum commonly used for tissue culture still contains many small molecular weight proteins e.g. amino acids, growth factors and cytokines that may potentially interfere with the analysis of the sample, to overcome this, dialysed serum should be used for SILAC analysis. Dialysed serum has been treated to remove the small solutes. From a proteomics point of view, the 10,000 Molecular Weight Cut Off (MWCO) is the "best" and "cleanest" as all molecules smaller than 10,000 Da have been removed. However, this can pose a problem for the more selective cell types that require some of these smaller solutes to grow. We offer both dialyzd FBS and HS with 10,000; 5,000; 3,000 and 1,000 Da MWCO.
