Fetal Bovine Serum

Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is derived from coagulated whole blood, collected from the fetus by cardiac puncture. The blood is immediately centrifuged and the serum is frozen for transfer to our treatment facilities. Upon receipt at the processing plant, the serum is thawed, tested for acceptability, collected and passed through three sterilization filters of 100 nm (0.1 μm). The serum is bottled by an asceptic filling process.

Complete Traceability

For all our batches, we have complete traceability. The labeling system is computerized and designed for clarity from batch to batch. Each batch is monitored throughout processing and production to final packaging. The geographical origin is indicated on the Certificate of Analysis which accompanies each delivery of fetal bovine serum.

Quality Control Tests

All sera are rigorously tested for sterility, mycoplasmas, viruses (BVD, IBR and PI3). Each batch is also tested for its ability to withstand cell growth in vitro, plating efficiency and cloning efficiency on the following cell lines: HeLa, L929, SP2 / O-AG14, MRC-5. Certified and specially certified sera are subjected to a battery of additional tests including endotoxin, chemical components, protein electrophoresis and radial immunodiffusion.

BSE

Donors of European origin are tested for BSE before treatment in accordance with European Regulation 999/2001. All animals tested are BSE negative.
