Corning’s expert manufacturing and reliable supply of serum products perfectly complement our classical and custom cell culture media portfolio.

Overview

Overview

Our serum products are collected, processed, and tested in accordance with cGMP standards and EP and USP methods. They are certified for traceability and suitability by the ISIA and EDQM.

Origin
We offer several premium FBS products collected in approved abattoirs from herds in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand.  Also, our regular FBS is collected in approved facilities from herds located in countries approved by the USDA for importation into the United States. In certain regions we also provide South America-sourced FBS manufactured at facilities approved by the appropriate local authorities.

Sterile Filtered
The raw serum is filtered through a series of three 0.1 micron sterilizing filters. Corning requires each serum lot to test negative for mycoplasma by two methods to qualify as product for our customers.

Low Endotoxin Levels (LAL) Limulus Amebocyte Lysate
Each lot is tested for bacterial endotoxin. Our premium and regular grade FBS must meet a specification of ≤5 EU/mL and our regular grade FBS must meet a specification of ≤20EU/mL.

Low Hemoglobin Levels
A quantitative and colorimetric assay is performed to determine the residual hemoglobin concentration in each product lot. All lots of premium Corning FBS are verified to contain ≤25 mg/dL of hemoglobin while regular grade contains ≤30 mg/dL of hemoglobin.

Certificate of Analysis and Biochemical Profile
Corning sera products are analyzed for quality and performance. Testing includes pH, osmolality, growth promotion, sterility (current USP method), mycoplasma, total protein, endotoxin and hemoglobin levels, virus, proteins, hormones, and trace medals.
