    Product Description

    AICON™ Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS), Canadian origin, is filtered using 100 nm (0.1 µm) pore size-rated filters and processed using true pool technology to ensure consistency in the quality of the serum. AICON™ FBS  Canadian Origin is compliant with current good manufacturing practices (cGMP). AICON™ FBS is widely used by professionals requiring an extensive biochemical profile and full traceability back to the original source.


    Key features of AICON™ FBS, Canadian origin:

    • Sourced in Canada

    • Low in antibodies and high in growth factors

    • Complete traceability back to original source

    • Virus panel testing according to 9 CFR 113.53

    • Produced using true pool technology for uniformity and consistency from bottle to bottle



    AICON™ FBS is filtered through three sequential 100 nm (0.1 μm) pore size-rated filters. Before dispensing, each lot of serum is pooled to ensure uniformity and consistency between bottles (true pool technology).

    AICON™ FBS  is assayed for gamma globulin, alkaline phosphatase, lactate dehydrogenase, glutamic pyruvic
    transaminase (SBPT), glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT), pH, total protein, albumin, blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, total bilirubin, sodium, potassium, calcium, chloride, inorganic phosphorus, osmolality, iron, total iron binding capacity (TIBC), percent iron saturation, glucose, and IgG. Included assays are subject to change without notice.


    Storage and handling

    Sera should be stored at -10°C or lower. Once thawed, sera should be stored at 2°C to 8°C. To maintain quality, a conservative storage recommendation for sera at this temperature is no longer than six weeks. If the serum needs to be stored longer than six weeks after opening, it is recommended to aliquot the serum into convenient volumes and refreeze.



    Remove serum from -10°C (or lower) storage and place in a refrigerator overnight at 2°C to 8°C. Transfer the serum to a 37°C water bath, agitate periodically to mix the solutes concentrated at the bottom of the container. Do not hold the serum at 37°C any longer than necessary after thawing. Thawing serum in a bath above 40°C without mixing can denature the concentrated proteins in the bottom of the container and precipitates might form in the bottle. Thawing serum at higher temperatures is not recommended.

    Alternatively, bottles can be placed directly from -10°C (or lower) storage into a 37°C water bath. Bottles should be agitated to enhance mixing and thawing. Turbidity and flocculent material might be present after thawing or after prolonged storage. Experience indicates that regardless of the method used to thaw
    serum, it is critical that it is mixed during the thawing process to prevent the formation of gradients and subsequent precipitation. Because of differences in thawing rates of different components, serum will form a gradient if it is not mixed as it thaws. If serum is allowed to remain in such a gradient state, precipitation is
    likely to occur. Handle bottles that have been stored in freezer carefully. Avoid large temperature shifts and protect the serum from exposure to light. Wear protective clothes and equipment. Storage requirements are listed on the product label.


    General culture recommendations

    We recommend supplementation of classical media at a range between 5% and 10% FBS to support culture of a wide variety of cell lines and applications.
