Why Does Material Precipitate In FBS Upon Storage In The Refrigerator?
FBS is not pre-aged. When stored at 2 to 8°C, the possibility exists for various proteins and lipoproteins in serum (e.g., cold agglutinins, fibrinogen, vitronectin, etc.) to aggregate, and form either perceptible material or observed turbidity. This should not affect serum performance. We recommend that you store FBS at -20°C and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
