Ultra low IgG fetal bovine serum has been chromatographically "purified" of IgG, an important factor in isolating organisms that may be inhibited by pre-existing levels of IgG or quantitative IgG immunoassays. The serum retains full biological activity.
- Lowers Ig levels (< 5 μg/ml) in fetal bovine serum while preserving comparable performance to regular fetal bovine serum
- BVD antibody titer is low or not detectable
- Expert technical support
- Now available in our innovatively designed, aliquot-free Gibco One Shot FBS 50 mL bottle
