Fetal Bovine Serum can contain the antibiotic tetracycline (tet) and researchers using very sensitive tet-inducible gene expression systems encounter problems with unintended expression as a result. Serum containing minimal levels of tetracycline is needed to ensure accurate gene expression.
This product is used in cell culture applications using tet-inducible gene expression systems, and other applications in which the presence of tetracycline would prove disruptive. The limit of detection is approximately 0.001 µg/ml.
