Fetal Bovine Serum - Hybridoma Qualified Summary

Hybridoma Qualified Fetal Bovine Serum is ideally suited for culturing hybridoma and myeloma cells.

Key Benefits

• Supports clonal growth of hybridoma cells
• Screened for superior growth of hybridoma and myeloma cell lines
• Low endotoxin and low hemoglobin levels
• USDA-Approved FBS of Mexico/Central American origin
• Manufactured in our ISO 9001:2015 certified facility
• Formerly sold under the Atlanta Biologicals brand

Why Use Hybridoma Qualified Fetal Bovine Serum?

High quality Fetal Bovine Serum, also known as Fetal Calf Serum (FCS), is screened to identify lots that offer optimal performance with these cells. Hybridoma Qualified lots must show superior growth promotion, exceptional clonal growth at limiting dilution, and a lack of cytotoxicity during the growth studies. All lots of Hybridoma Qualified FBS are manufactured in our ISO 9001:2015 certified facility.

Fetal Bovine Serum and other serum products should be stored and handled correctly to assure long-term stability and to preserve growth performance consistency throughout its shelf-life. In addition, heat inactivation of serum is frequently desired to inactivate complement within the serum. Below are protocol links for serum storage/handling and heat inactivation.

Collection, Processing, and Testing of R&D Systems FBS

Collection and Processing - R&D Systems FBS is manufactured under a process that meets USDA requirements for animal products and ensures the product is traceable back to the date and location of collection. Our FBS manufacturing adheres to closed-system collection, processing in positive pressure, HEPA-filtered clean rooms, and triple 0.1 um filtration to remove contaminants. Strict control of the process from collection through processing enables us to provide a stable, consistent performing, and traceable supply of quality serum throughout global fluctuations in serum availability and regulatory requirements.

Virus Testing - Fetal Bovine Serum – Hybridoma Qualified undergoes testing for adventitious viruses, such as: Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus (BVDV), Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis Virus (IBRV), Parainfluenza-3 Virus (PI-3V), Bluetongue Virus (BTV), Bovine Respiratory Syncytial Virus (BRSV), Bovine Parvovirus (BPV), Bovine Adenovirus, Type 3 (BAV-3), Bovine Adenovirus, Type 5 (BAV-5), Reo virus, and Rabies virus.

Biochemical Testing - R&D Systems FBS undergo biochemical profiling including total protein, albumin, globulin, IgG, total bilirubin, glucose, iron, cholesterol, triglycerides, sodium and potassium. View the product insert for a complete list of biochemical profiling components, which may vary between grades.

Chemical Analysis - Each lot of FBS is tested for osmolality, pH, hemoglobin, endotoxin (LAL method) and microbiological contamination (using methods recommended by the U.S. Pharmacopeia).
