Goat Serum

Goat Serum Overview



Rockland offers high quality, cell culture-grade goat serum that provides a source of nutrients and factors critical for optimal cell growth and metabolism. It can be effectively used as a substitute of traditional FBS for supplementation of defined basal media of cell lines, primary cultures and virus production. Normal goat serum (NGS) can be also used as an effective blocking agent in a number of immunological techniques since it can successfully reduce nonspecific binding of proteins and antibodies to reaction surfaces and non-specific binding sites.



The Rockland Advantage: Goat Serum



Rockland have developed a highly precise and efficient method for the purification of goat serum appropriate for cell culture of mammalian and other eukaryotic cell lines and tissues. Likewise, Rockland also provides normal goat serum (NGS) that is fully compatible with most immunoassays including western blot, ELISA, immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry and immunoprecipitation.




Suggested Products for Common Assays



For ELISA (E), Western Blotting (WB) or Immunohistochemistry (IHC) use our highly purified Goat Gamma Globulin Fraction as a suitable isotype control in a variety of immunoassays. Also, Lyophilized Goat Serum can be used as a blocking agent to treat plastic surfaces, membrane or tissue after they have been sensitized with primary antibody or antigen.
For in vitro cell culture, sterile goat serum is used as a supplement to cell culture media providing a broad spectrum of macromolecules and low molecular weight nutrients. Be certain to maintain Good Cell Culture Practice, and maintain sterility of cultures that require media supplementation.
