    Choosing Serum for Cells in Culture

    Serum is a key component for growing and maintaining cells in culture. Containing a mixture of proteins, hormones, minerals and other growth factors, serum is a nutrient boost for cultured cells. It is added to media as a growth supplement, and specialized forms can be used for different experimental conditions. Determining the serum conditions that provide optimal cell growth can be a challenging task. “Selection of sera products is dependent upon the growth requirements of the cell type it’s being used for, with sensitive cell lines often requiring the highest quality serum,” says Brian Douglass, global head of cell-culture product management and marketing in life sciences at GE Healthcare. Many suppliers offer serum, in various formulations and with different purity levels. Fetal bovine serum (FBS), or fetal calf serum (FCS), is the most widely used form, but there are features and options to consider. Here we discuss some key considerations when selecting sera for culturing cells.

    Point-of-Care Diagnostic Tests Streamline Patient Care

    Point-of-care (POC) tests have evolved from a unique approach for gathering information to an almost routine, more efficient solution for patients to receive care without having to travel to different locations for lab work. Often POC tests can provide faster time to results, which translates into better patient care. Today many POC tests are available; they focus on everything from blood chemistry to HIV infection. Here is a glimpse into common areas of POC testing and the processes involved in developing new POC diagnostic tests.
