Why Choose Corning Fetal Bovine Serum?
Corning offers a wide variety of fetal bovine serum (FBS) options to satisfy most common applications and price points. Corning FBS is a perfect complement to Corning classical cell culture media. Our direct relationship with abattoirs helps support a consistent supply, available year after year, even when the industry as a whole experiences supply shortages. Corning FBS is fully traceable to the abattoir and exceeds the industry’s toughest quality standards.
True Pooled Sterile Filtered
All Corning® FBS is triple 0.1 micron sterile filtered with a Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) of 10-3. In addition to USP <71> and EP 2.6.1 sterility testing, all lots must test negative for mycoplasma.
Serum is true pooled after filtration to ensure consistency from bottle to bottle within a lot. True pooling greatly reduces the variability within a lot.
Certificate of Analysis and Biochemical Profile
Corning sera products are evaluated for quality, performance and analytical testing, including pH, osmolality, growth promotion and/or plating efficiency, sterility, mycoplasma, viral contamination (9CFR113.53), total protein, endotoxin and hemoglobin levels. A biochemical profile is also provided with each lot. All of this information can be found on our comprehensive Certificate of Analysis.
