MSP brand Premium Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS)
Our Fetal Bovine Serum (USDA Approved) is derived from fetuses of healthy, bovine dams that have been deemed fit for human consumption through ante- and post-mortem veterinary inspection. Manufactured utilizing current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and triple 0.1 micron filtered. We source fetal bovine serum (USDA Approved) from countries that have met the USDA importation requirements to the United States. Approved countries must be free from exotic bovine viruses for extended periods of times. USDA maintains and updates the list on a regular basis. Blood is collected and processed in facilities registered and inspected by the competent veterinary authority by the country of origin. When foreign serum enters the country, it is quarantined in an approved USDA holding facility and representative samples are tested for exotic viruses. Upon completion of testing accompanied by negative results for the viruses in question, the serum is released and may be further processed and packaged for sale. Fetal Bovine Serum USDA origin serum has the same detailed traceability as U.S. Origin.
Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is a by-product of the beef (bovine) industry that originates from fetuses of healthy dams that have been deemed fit for human consumption through ante-and post-mortem veterinary inspection. It is the most popular of the serum types. FBS is collected from ISIA traceability certified facilities that undergo cGMP audits. Serum is filtered through a series of 0.1um pore sized integrity tested filters to provide a product suitable for cell culture. Fetal Bovine Serum is the most expensive component when preparing complete media. A 10% concentration of FBS costs more than all standard cell culture components combined.
