Fetal Select™ is a proprietary combination of Pure USDA approved Fetal Bovine Serum and Pure EquaFETAL® of US origin and can be used as a economic Fetal Bovine Serum alternative. Fetal Select™ is the USDA sourcing of Fetal Reserve. The difference between Fetal Reserve and Fetal Select™ is the FBS sourcing offering an additional price advantage. The various sera produce a product that works for most common cell lines at a substantial savings. Fetal Select™ was developed as a universal supplement for cell and tissue culture applications while providing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) quality at an affordable price. The unique source of USDA approved FBS with our U.S. Origin bovine serum provides a product that may provide an additional benefit for your application because of the combination of the various characteristics from the US and USDA origin serum. The formulation is proprietary and the exclusive property of Atlas Biologicals. Manufactured utilizing current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and triple 0.1 micron filtered.
