Lonza to Host New Webinar – "Cell Culture Media: Why Go Serum-Free?"

  • Free Lonza webinar to discuss the benefits of working with serum-free cell culture media and provide guidance on how to get the best results
Basel, Switzerland, 1 October 2019 – On 15 October, Lonza will host a free 60-minute webinar that will address current concerns regarding the use of serum in cell culture media, explore viable alternatives and provide guidance on how to adapt cells to a serum-free environment.

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 are considering serum-free cell culturing.

In the webinar titled "Cell culture media: Why go serum-free?", 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
