Zap-Hybridoma is a cell culture media supplement designed to enable cost-effective, serum-free antibody production. Zap-Hybridoma can replace fetal bovine serum (FBS) when used with DMEM-F12. Use of Zap-Hybridoma as a cell culture supplement paired with DMEM-F12 is less expensive than both serum containing culture and commercially available serum-free media.
Zap-Hybridoma is an animal-free, recombinant cell culture media supplement that is defined and consistent from lot-to-lot. Zap-Hybridoma is also bovine IgG-free. This eliminates IgG contamination and leads to improved quality of the final antibody because there is no contamination with bovine IgG resulting from the use of serum.. In some cases low IgG serum is used to address this issue, but low IgG serum adds significant expense and is not completely IgG free. Use of low IgG serum can double the cost of cell culture media.
What customers are saying about Zap-Hybridoma:
"Adding Zap-Hybridoma to our media allowed our hybridomas to grow to a higher density with increased viability thus increasing the amount of antibody we were able to purify."
Pat Korty, NIH-NIAID
"We were amazed to see how well our hybridomas were able to adapt to a serum free environment and maintain a stable viability and antibody production. I would recommend the usage of InVitria's Zap-Hybridoma to those who search for a completely serum free environment for their cells in order to avoid the contamination of bovine antibodies and other downsides from the usage of serum."
Peter Andersson, Mabtech AB
"The serum-free medium with Zap-Hybridoma is in our hands a worthy alternative as a replacement for fetal bovine serum in hybridoma cell culture. We have successfully applied the Zap-Hybridoma in limiting dilution and production tests. We have done this for several cell clones, cell culture media and culture systems. Antibody expression with Zap-Hybridoma was in most cases greater than or equal to the expression yields obtained in fetal bovine containing culture medium."
