TCS Biosciences Ltd is pleased to incorporate fetal (foetal) Bovine Serum (FBS) of Australian and New Zealand Origin and Donor Bovine Serum of New Zealand origin in to our range.
Australia and New Zealand, being island countries with the strictest quarantine systems, have remained relatively disease free. This, coupled with careful collection, strict processing and filtration procedures, followed by rigorous testing ensures product of the highest integrity. Serum is shipped direct from the country of origin. Comprehensive documentation demonstrates full product traceability.
