Why Use Atlanta Biologicals Fetal Bovine Serum - EU - approved?

Fetal bovine serum (FBS), also known as Fetal Calf Serum (FCS), is the most commonly used media supplement for cells in culture. FBS is the ideal cell growth supplement and generally preferred over other types of cell culture sera. Its high levels of nutrients and optimal combination of growth factors makes FBS the most effective cell growth promoter for virtually any cell culture system. In addition, the significantly lower content of antibodies compared to adult and newborn sera minimizes the risk of antibody cross reaction with cells in culture. R&D Systems, a Bio-Techne brand, offers several grades of Atlanta Biologicals FBS, including one approved for use in Europe.
