Complete Freund's Adjuvant (CFA or FCA) is 4 mg/ml M. Tuberculosis (non-viable) in mineral oil. For in-vivo/in-vitro studies. Typically used for the boost of an immune response.

Complete Freund's Aduvant (CFA or FCA) is widely used in immunological research for the preparation of antigen-adjuvant emulsions in laboratory animal studies. CFA contains cell wall components of heat killed Mycobacterium tuberculosis and is often used for the initial injection that stimulates an enhanced immune response.
