The One Shot FBS 50 mL bottle
An aliquot-free solution to minimize contamination and save time.
The Gibco One Shot FBS 50 mL bottle is designed to significantly improve your results and solve myriad challenges slowing down your research.
Take control of your results by putting an end to aliquoting.
“This bottle allows for convenience of speed while maintaining a sterile product. As we have lots of undergrads in and out of the lab, this ensures that one mishap with not-so-aged hands doesn't ruin a whole pack of FBS.” Bethany C. Prudner, PhD, Metabolomic Sarcoma Lab, Washington University in St Louis
Free up freezer space
In fact, the One Shot 10 x 50 mL carton allows you to store up to 35 L more FBS in an average 20 ft. freezer than our current 40 x 50 mL One Shot carton, and 57 L more than our 100 mL bottle.
Pack the rack
Your test tube racks aren’t just for conical tubes anymore. The One Shot FBS 50 mL bottle fits perfectly in most test tube racks—including strong, durable 30 mm Nalgene Unwire Racks. So you get the convenience of fit in an easy-pour, easy-store, aliquot-free bottle.
Create less waste
The One Shot FBS 50 mL bottle generates 33% less waste than aliquoting from 500 mL bottles (see table below). By using less plastic, less petroleum feedstock is consumed, and fewer greenhouse gas emissions are generated. In the lab, a typical customer using 20 L of FBS per year would get back almost 7 hours and generate 7 lb less plastic waste by choosing One Shot FBS. This is a significant benefit both to lab productivity and the environment.
