Australian origin Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is collected only from USDA or AQIS (Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service) approved abattoirs in Australia, and Australia is considered to be free of BSE and FMD. Australian origin FBS is aseptically processed by J R Scientific and placed in Quarantine while it undergoes a full panel of quality control testing. Samples are provided to the USDA for safety testing. The FBS sample submitted to the USDA is inoculated into sheep by the subcutaneous route. Serum from the sheep is tested for antibodies against Bluetongue Virus by agar gel immunodiffusion and for Akabane by the serum neutralization test on the day of inoculation and at 28 days post inoculation. Upon a satisfactory USDA report and the satisfactory completion of all other quality testing, the FBS is released for distribution.

J R Scientifics’ proprietary disposable processing system, from pre-filtration to final aseptic dispensing, eliminates any potential for cross contamination with other products and processes.
