Peak Serum’s US Origin FBS, (PS-FB1) worked better than Gibco on our 3T3-L1 cells / differentiation application. We want the cells to be differentiated as much as possible and Peak Serum FBS fit our needs.
K.B. Mayo Clinic
We had the chance to test Peak Serum’s US Origin FBS (PS-FB1) side-by-side with the Gibco Certified brand we’re using and didn’t find any noticeable differences. I evaluated growth kinetics and tested to see if/how well the serums activated cell signaling pathways. I am happy with the results and quality of Peak Serum.

M.M. H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center
Considering HT-1080 fibrosarcoma, Peak Serum US FBS lot was better than 5 other leading FBS brands including our current control.
Furthermore, considering the price of Peak Serum US FBS lot, which was up to $100 lower per 500mL bottle than the other brands, along with equivalent or better performance, Peak Serum was a clear winner!
Another very important consideration was that Peak Serum accommodated our request of spreading the payment of the whole purchase for 6 month, which was crucial for making a final decision.”
E.D. The Scripps Research Institute
We tested Peak Serum USDA-Approved ( PS-FB2 ) with our Calu-3 and Capan-1 cells. The Capan-1 cells are in 20% serum and very finicky, I’m am very pleased with the quality of Peak FBS.
E.M. University of Alabama Huntsville
Peak serum provides US origin and USDA approved fetal bovine serum that is superior in quality and less expensive. We have tested other brands of serum alongside Peak FBS and found it to be a better product overall. Better quality product at a lower price relative to competitors.

As a member of a large lab and having a tight timeline to test and order FBS, Peak Serum helped meet my needs quickly, efficiently, and competitively. They gave me a competitive price up front, shipped me a sample to test quickly, and had sera that worked competitively side by side other samples. The personal touch and attention was the best part. I will surely be in touch for future needs!

My laboratory focuses on cancer biology and signal transduction, which can be sensitive to even the smallest variations in tissue culture conditions and reagents. Thus, our studies require high quality, consistent tissue culture products.
We have been using fetal bovine serum (FBS) from Peak Serum, Inc. for a little over a year now and have found that the quality and consistency of the FBS to be superior over other sources that we have tried. Further, Peak Serum has provided fast and responsive customer service—they have been most helpful and have also provided very competitive pricing. We recently learned that Peak is now also carrying various laboratory disposables at great pricing and have placed our first order.

Love this company! Peak Serum goes above and beyond when it comes to servicing their customers. I am always advised on what the best options are and made aware of any updates. I would definitely recommend shopping here for serum.
R.B. Massachusetts General Hospital
I have been using Peak Serum since starting my graduate studies almost 3 years ago. Earlier this year, we tested FBS lots from other vendors & from Peak Serum as we were looking to purchase a new batch. The representative was very easy to work with and knowledgeable about which lots were available & how they would perform. He knew right away which samples to send over that would work best for the mouse embryonic stem cells we culture. He wasn’t wrong! The samples he sent over out-performed the lots from other vendors and the price matched the quality.
R.W. Vanderbilt University
I’ve used PEAK serum since I was a postdoctoral fellow and it’s a great product. All of our cell lines grow very well in it compared to other serum we’ve used and it’s priced very reasonable considering the high quality of the serum.
L.C. University of Nebraska
Great prices, fast shipping. A pleasure to work with Peak Serum and we have been using their FBS for 2+ years after switching from Atlanta Biologicals (much more expensive) and have not had any issues.
D.M. Creighton University
The US origin FBS from PEAK Serum (Cat #PS-FB1) works great for most of our cell lines. We have more than 20 different cell lines from different tissues culturing in the lab, they all grow healthily using PEAK FBS. I would recommend this FBS product as it provides superior quality while charged at a reasonable price.
L.W. Moffitt Cancer Center
Tom Kutrubes is extremely knowledgeable, helping me find the appropriate serum for my cell lines at the best price, and quickly. The customer service couldn’t be better.
K.K. Vital Therapies, Inc.
Serum prices have been rising outrageously. It is difficult keep doing research when a big chunk of your grant goes to FBS. I have been searching for FBS alternative supplier to the most famous brand, taking a lot of time comparing different brands and lots of FBS for performance on our cells. We use mostly primary cells that we isolate from Epidermolysis Bullosa and Squamous Cell Carcinoma Patients, so the quality of FBS is capital importance for our purposes.
It has been almost 3 years that we are using FBS from Peak Serum, Inc. It always has performed at the same levels, and in some assays even better, compared to FBS from other more famous brands, and the price is reasonable. Moreover, the costumer’s service is highly qualified, professional and collaborative.
I highly recommend Peak Serum for its performance and for the knowledgeable and courtesy of the customer’s service.
M.P. Thomas Jefferson University
I have been working with Peak Serum for about one year and half and I have been extremely impressed. Their customer service is the best. I get a response to my email immediately and all my questions get answered clearly. When I order products, I get them in lab at a time that is convenient for me (and usually hand delivered! AWESOME!). The performance of my HepG2 cells with US Origin FBS (PS-FB1) compared to other competitor’s products can’t beat. And what a great deal on their prices!
O.A. Colorado State University
We have been using Peak’s FBS and Newborn Calf Serum with many cell lines and numerous virus species since the inception of the business and have been nothing but pleased with the products and the service.
