JRS Launches FBS Alternative Kit

With the rising price of fetal bovine serum (FBS) and shortage of material in the marketplace, JRS has developed a platform approach to finding alternative FBS products with similar performance characteristics to FBS but at a lower cost.  J R Scientific’s platform approach to helping find a cost effective alternative can be found in our FBS Alternative Kit consisting of the following components:

  • FBS Advantage - FBS based product modified with defined and natural chemicals to mimic the normal levels of protein and other FBS growth enhancing properties
  • Iron Supplemented Calf Serum (IFCS) Advantage - A special formula fed calf serum with a high iron and transferrin component plus a naturally derived, non-synthetic growth supplement
  • Iron Fortified Calf Serum (IFCS) - A special formula fed calf serum with a high iron and transferrin component
  • Newborn Calf Serum (NBCS) Advantage - A controlled source of bovine serum and iron component
  • Trypsin 0.25%
  • Penicillin/Streptomycin Solution (100x)
