Animal-free cell culture

The Swedish 3Rs Center has made an inventory of animal-free alternatives to traditional cell culture components with a focus on serum-free media, 3D-cell culture, and alternatives for detachment and freezing of cells.

Cell culture is a widespread research model that is often used to replace animal experiments, however it is usually not entirely animal-free. Many components used in a traditional cell culture to maintain cell growth are derived from animals and sometimes animal experimentation is required to produce them.

The Swedish 3Rs Center has published an overview of novel animal-free cell culture components and useful resources for serum-free media, 3D-scaffolds and components for handling of cells in vitro.
