Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS)

NOVA Biologics is proud to announce we are now distributing Bovogen Biologicals New Zealand origin bovine products in the USA!

All Bovogen Biologicals’ FBS is collected from registered export abattoirs under the supervision of Government Veterinary authorities.

Bovogen Biologicals’ FBS is manufactured in a fully validated sterile filtration facility under strict GMP conditions. Our serum follows an aseptic control flow process aligned to the following inclusions.

  1. Validated Aseptic Sterile Filtration Suite
  2. Sterile Single Use Filtration Process (Triple 0.1 µm filters)
  3. Sterile Homogenising Bio-container System
  4. Sterile Integrated Filling and Dispensing System

Our fully disposable sterile filtration process ensures serum only comes in contact with single use equipment. This means each new batch uses new and dedicated equipment which is disposed of at the the conclusion of each batch.

All critical release testing performed on Bovogen Biologicals’  FBS is outsourced to suitably qualified and certified external laboratories. This provides independence in relation to test results reported on the Certificate of Analysis.
