Why is Australian FBS so expensive?

Faq introduction

Below, is a list of commonly asked questions, if you don’t find the answers you are looking for, please contact us.

Australian FBS prices are higher because Australia is perceived to be a "safer" origin for BSE and cattle viruses. Canada and Australia were the first countries outside the USA where FBS was produced. In the 1980s, BSE cases that occurred in North America became a strong argument in favor of Australian FBS. The point was made that being "isolated", Australia was necessarily the most secure origin.
