Optimum serum starvation period for NIH, CHO, COS7 cells

Can I ask why is serum starvation required for immunofluorescence purposes?

have you finally decided on an optimum time to serum starve your cells? What I see in the literature is that cells are commonly starved for 12h to 24 hours prior to experiment. My experience is that some cells are more sensitive to cell starvation though, they seem to be dying at prolonged starvation time. They also seem to be stressed, which might change the cells' behavior when compared to being full-fed.

I usually serum starve the NIH and COS cells over night.
