    Educational Modules

    Attention Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Professionals!
    We have an exciting new educational module focused on the importance of geographic testing for fetal bovine serum (FBS) and how it pertains to your research.  
    This module covers the standard protocols and procedures involved, the interpretation of results, and the impact on cell culture. Our experts will guide you through real-world examples and case studies to illustrate the practical applications of geographic testing.  We are confident you will come away from this training with a greater appreciation and understanding why many in your industry only use FBS that has gone through this testing.
    Join us on February 15, 2023 at 1pm EST as we discuss Geographic testing for FBS: How and why?
    We look forward to seeing you there!
