About the product
XerumFree™ is a unique platform as it has some features not found in FBS replacements today:
1) It is fully defined
This means that any experiment or process using XerumFree™ instead of FBS can be repeated with the same outcome, wether it is 5 years later or in a different lab. A very important advantage for science, besides eliminating costly batch testing and storing.
2) It is animal-component free
More and more research, development and production seeks animal-free products. Motivated by scientific reasons, for easy production or for ethical reasons, to name a few. Supported by governments and consumers demanding a sustainable and ethical product.
3) It is risk free
There are no components in XerumFree™ that hold the risk of potential diseases like e.g. prions that can turn into BSE. Making it reliable and safe.
Sales and support are done from Europe, in the Netherlands. Ordering can be done via our distributors, contact us directly for special requests.
