Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS), South American Origin
Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is the growth supplement of choice for cell culture due to its high level of nutrients. Most cell types and cell culture systems will benefit from the inclusion of FBS in growth media. It is produced to the highest standards to ensure product performance and safety with minimal risk and lot-to-lot variability. MP Biomedicals system of vertical integration provides certainty of the South American origin and traceability of this FBS.
