Yet we put them through hell everyday in the lab. Listen to what your cells have to say...

Standard FBS (Fetal Bovine Serum) from Gibco® is ideal for general cell culture with robust cell lines. It offers good value for basic research. [AUDIO TRANSCRIPT] - They say they love us. We are "precious". We matter for quality results. But you gotta wonder... - They say that without us being happy and healthy, that they would have nothin'. But, they put us through all this and expect us to perform? - We could be getting the love one minute and the next minute they're spinnin' us at 20 Gs. We are pretty robust cells, but - I mean - if you want top results, you have to at least feed us right! - Before we had this stuff, they were trying to save a few bucks. I mean c'mon, be smart, we don't mind a little electroshock, the overcrowded flask, but scrimping on quality? ..... never pays in the long run. - These were finally installed... few months ago. What a difference, we're happy, production's up - and they're happy.
