PowerPoint Presentations

Beginning May 1, 2019 FAES will no longer accept new orders for CellServ Kits.

If you have requirements for kits between May and June, 2019 please email cellserv@faes.org or call 301-496-7977. Thank you for the opportunity to be your cell supplier.

FAES will continue to offer an extensive line of PowerPoint Presentations on varied core biotechnology topics to enhance the learning experience of students without increasing the burden on teachers.
