Peak Serum Proudly Supports Research

Cares for Cures is an initiative by Peak Serum to support cutting edge research to help eliminate disease or treat illness. With this initiative, a biological research lab is selected to receive a Fetal Bovine Serum donation from Peak Serum.

Labs of any size who are members of BioLabs are invited and encouraged to apply for free FBS for a year. All requests will be considered on the basis of their research potential.

Fill out the following form for consideration, donation recipients will be notified by email in December 2021:
