Application

FBS sourced from Australia is use in a broad range of cell culture applications. FBS provides many non-defined growth promoting and survival enhancing factor to cells in culture. Australia carries the best possible rating in relation toGeographical Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) Risk (GBR) as designated by the Scientific Steering Committee on the Geographical Risk of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy. The classification for Australia is GBR Level I.
