Fetal Bovine Serum - FBS

RMBIO’s Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) promotes steady, healthy cell growth. We can source our FBS cell culture medium supplement from Australia, New Zealand, the US, as well as USDA approved regions in North America. We provide a Certificate of Analysis for all lots.

Fetal Bovine Serum - FBS
  • FBS is the most highly used growth factor in cell culture due to its high level of nutrients
  • Formulation of serum containing and serum reduced media for mammalian cell culture for the production of antibodies, antigens, stem cells and vaccines
  • Cryopreservation, storage and shipping of biological materials such as cell lines and antibodies
  • Base matrices for diagnostic kit controls
  • Blocking agent for immunoassays and blotting
  • All fetal bovine serum is fully traceable and is sourced from audited suppliers
  • We process our FBS in single containers and triple 0.1 µ sterile filter it. This eliminates any cross contamination potential.
  • Custom serum packages available including charcoal treated, heat inactivated, and low endotoxin levels. FBS packaged in 500mL and 1L bottles, or custom containers
