Cell Culture Media: Why Go Serum-free?

On Demand Webinar

In this webinar, learn about the negative effects of culturing cells in serum and the advantages of switching to serum-free cell culturing.

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 consider serum-free cell culturing.

Join this webinar to learn about the concerns regarding the use of serum, and find out about viable alternatives.

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

The presentation lasts 45 minutes and is followed by a live Q&A session.
