3R Days 2021: PL BioScience GmbH - Moving towards xeno-free cell culture media: Human platelet lysate outperforms FBS
Fetal bovine serum is still a component of many cell cultures in preclinical research since it provides a broad spectrum of molecules known to support cell attachment and growth and is relatively cheap to aquire.
Human platelet lysate on the other hand offers a promising alternative to make cell cultures completely animal free without the ethical concerns regarding the large scale extraction of FBS. Dr. Anna Kolkmann, scientist at PL BioScience, will present a HPL-based platform called ELAREM and talk about HPL outperforming FBS as cell culture media.
We are looking forward to it!

Dr. Kolkmann`s talk is scheduled for Scientific Day 2 on Nov. 12, 2021.
