Abstract

NEARLY all media routinely used for cell culture contain from 5 to 40 per cent serum of a particular species of animal. As one might expect, there has been much research into the nature of the fraction or fractions of serum which form the active part of this material1–6. Despite this the exact nature of the activity of serum or its fractions is unknown.
