ACCUTASE

Accutase is a "ready to use" cell detachment solution of proteolytic and collagenolytic enzymes.
Accutase is the "gentler form" of Trypsin.
It can replace Trypsin/EDTA for the detachment and dissociation of "anchorage-dependent" cells from surfaces.
It can also be used on suspension cells to reduce clumping in preparation for counting.

Key advantages of Accutase over the traditional Trypsin/EDTA:

  • Less damaging to cells
  • Increased cell viability
  • Lowered risk of introducing adventitious agents
  • Significant reduction of any mammalian or bacterially derived proteins
  • Enhanced plating efficiency
  • Improved cell morphology and cell growth characteristics
  • Particularly useful for cells grown in serum free/protein free culture environment

BME & MEM CONCENTRATE AMINO ACIDS, VITAMINS, NEAA

Our solution of concentrated amino acids, vitamins or non essential amino acids can be added to enrich your basal medium, enabling it to be used as a classical MEM or BME.
The final concentration of the BME or MEM must be 1X.

GLUCOSE

D-Glucose Monohydrate is a common natural sugar involved in processes, such as energy production, glycosylation, and formation of glycans that provide structure to cells.
It is involved in a detrimental process in cells called glycation.
It is used as a supplement for cell culture and in numerous cellular processes.

GLUTAMINE

L-Glutamine is an essential amino acid required by virtually all mammalian and insect cells grown in culture. It is a crucial component of many cell culture media and serves as a major energy source for cells in culture.
L-Glutamine is very stable as a dry powder and as a frozen solution.
However, in liquid media or stock solutions, L-Glutamine can degrade relatively rapidly. 
L-Glutamine is also more labile in cell culture solution than other amino acids. 
Dipeptide derivatives of L-Glutamine (Stable Glutamine) prevent the intramolecular cyclization reaction associated with solutions of L-Glutamine. These derivatives are therefore stable in solution and allow the formulation of cell culture media containing L-Glutamine that may be stored at 4°C for extended periods. Solutions containing these derivatives can even be autoclaved without appreciable degradation of the product (30 minutes at 121°C results in <5% loss of the product).
The dipeptide derivatives are metabolized within the cells to yield L-Glutamine plus the second amino acid. This results in a more consistent delivery of L-Glutamine to cells and avoids toxic build-up of ammonia in cell cultures.
This feature can be especially important for ammonia-sensitive cell lines.

About us

Company details

BIOWEST - 30 YEARS OF SERVING LIFE SCIENCES
Quality, efficiency and transparency’s commitments have made Biowest a European leader for over 30 years. Combined with a fully integrated supply chain and confident distributor network around the world, Biowest have earned the trust in life sciences field.
Founded in 1987, Biowest is the European leader in the collection of animal sera, providing the widest range of sera and cell culture media available on the market.

In 2004, Biowest was acquired by the Viking/Serascandia group, collectors of animal by-products in Latin America; to become the first serum company vertically integrated from raw material to finished product.
Our products are employed in the production of biopharmaceuticals and vaccines and in the academic, governmental and industrial research sectors in fields spanning the areas of cell biology, genomics, proteomics, virology, immunology, innovative drug research and toxicology.

Biowest is certified ISO 9001 : 2015 and ISO 13485 : 2016 (Biowest SAS France facility).

We work with a strong commitment to quality, reproducibility, traceability and service.
Our success is founded on a combination of competitive prices and a wide range of geographical origins.

ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRACEABILITY
Biowest supervises the entire manufacturing process from the collection around the world to the shipment of bottled serum from the warehouse.
 
We therefore guarantee a vertically integrated system of production and documentation.
Using specialized equipment, detailed SOPs and audits, Biowest ensures quality control at every stage and low intra-lot variation.

WORLDWIDE SOURCES OF SERA AND WIDEST RANGE OF PRODUCTS
Biowest is the ideal partner for both researchers and biopharmaceutical companies.
We propose a wide range of geographical origins of bovine sera.
Biowest is aware of the importance of choosing the right serum origin, as different applications allow the use of different types of origins with different prices.
Biowest guarantees the best choice of sera origins for all needs.

PURE EFFICIENCY
  • Best quality and premium service
  • Wide range of sera geographical sources
  • Commitment to addressing special requirements
  • Full traceability and security due to vertical integration
Biowest runs SAP S4HANA as complete and integrated ERP solution.
