Dear all,

I am doing a cell assay to see the effect of a hormone. The original
protocol used charcoal stripped FBS for the medium but this kind of
serum is not conveniently available here. Someone suggested heat
inactivated FBS would be an alternative. Are they similar? Is there any
critical difference if I use heat inactivated FBS instead?

Thanks!
