*Standard grade and stem-cell grade FBS

*Sterile 0.1 µm filtration

*Low endotoxin and hemoglobin levels

This sterile  filtered FBS (0.1μm) is collected either in USA or USDA-approved countries from Australia, north and central america.  Raw material is sourced from the same collection sites as Gibco. It is free from infectious and contagious diseases. No BVD, IBR or PI-3 is detected. No contamination or commingling with any other material of animal origin.

BioLab Packing provides standard and stem cell grade FBS. Cell growth of our standard grade FBS is comparative to Gibco product (See Figure) and  fits for most primary and cell line culture; stem cell grade FBS is prescreened for plating efficiency and maintenance of undifferentiated morphology of mouse embryonic stem cells.
