1 Collection

+
+

We start by collecting strictly from government-approved facilities with clinically examined healthy animals under veterinary supervision, using only the strictest aseptic collection techniques

Once it has been collected, our FBS is immediately packed on ice and kept at an ideal temperature, then shipped to our quality audited processing facilities

Did You Know...

We were the first global serum provider to be awarded the International Serum Industry Association Traceability certification, which requires rigorous records of the origin and quality of FBS throughout the entire supply chain starting at the collection phase.

At our processing facilities we conduct numerous quality checks such as testing hemoglobin levels to verify that the integrity of the product is maintained

Did You Know...

Our Gibco brand was the first serum to utilize FBS fingerprinting technology, powered by Oritain. We can now measure elements in our source regions to create a unique "fingerprint" for every batch of Gibco FBS, verifying that each product is genuine.

At our processing facilities we conduct numerous quality checks such as testing hemoglobin levels to verify the integrity of the product is maintained

Our blood and sera are centrifuged multiple times to the lowest hemoglobin levels

Frozen serum is transported to our processing facility in a freezer truck

3 Sterile filtration

+
+

Raw serum is thawed overnight in a temperature-controlled thaw room to minimize bacteria buildup

Testing before clearing QC

Did You Know...

We transfer our FBS to the clean room in specially designed stainless steel pipes where it then undergoes 0.1 μm triple filtration to eradicate biological contaminants.

See how we provide researchers the transparency and confidence they deserve.
