Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS), also known as Fetal Calf Serum (FCS), is an important supplement added to cell culture medium for maintaining cell health, promoting cell expansion, and other general cell culture applications. FBS is harvested from the blood drawn from a bovine fetus. FBS is a large source of proteins, enzymes, carbohydrates, electrolytes, lipids and other components necessary in many cell culture applications to support overall cell growth.

Leinco's highest FBS grade available is the Premium Select Fetal Bovine Serum. Premium Select FBS exhibits the lowest endotoxin and hemoglobulin our of all available FBS. This is ideal for even the most sensitive and demanding cell lines. Premium Select FBS shows a strong lot-to-lot consistency with a range of cell types. Premium Select FBS is commonly used when a hormone or extensive biochemical profile and/or extended virus test panel is called for.
