  • Fetalgro® is our proprietary blend of serum, supplemented with additives including our flagship product Lipogro®.
  • Fetalgro® is proven to match and in many cases outperform FBS in numerous cell lines including U2OS, HEK293, CHO, Vero, NB, HeLa, A549 and MDBK.
  • Fetalgro® is a fraction of the price of FBS due to the low cost of its base material.
  • Fetalgro® has a much more reliable supply line than FBS, ensuring constant availability.
  • Fetalgro specifications closely mimic FBS and is also typically BVDV Free.
  • Many cell lines are suited to direct adaptaton from FBS to Fetalgro with no weaning procedure.
  • All of the serum used in manufacturing Fetalgro® is fully traceable and is sourced from audited suppliers
  • We process Fetalgro® in single containers and triple 0.1 µ sterile filter it.
  • Storage conditions: ≤ -10° C

As the number of cattle continues to decline, RMBIO is committed to becoming a leader in the FBS alternative space. We are applying our decades of scientic experience and uncompromising quality standards to these FBS shortage solutions. Each lot of Fetalgro® is tested by RMBIO's team of experienced scientists in our own state-of-the-art cell culture lab prior to releasing the product for customer use. This investment in Fetalgro's product release testing gives us the ability to find the optimal performance for specific cell lines.
