SelectedItem doesn't work

I have a question regarding SelectedItem. I have set a combo box for an edit page using xamarin forms.

I have successfully retrieve the data from a collection and bind it in SFComboBox.as a datasasource now my is retrieving the value from database to combobox.
the combobox should display the previous data since it is an edit page. i have tried the SelectedItem but it is not showing in my combobox. 

please see the codes below

                                                     AllowFiltering="True" SuggestionMode="StartsWith" IsEditableMode="True" >
                                        TextColor="White" SelectedBackgroundColor="#990000" 
                                        DeleteButtonColor="Color.Brown" IsCloseButtonVisible="true" 
                                        CornerRadius="15" DeleteButtonPlacement="Right">

and this is how i use the selected item

 foreach (string laboratory in laboratoryList)
                if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(laboratory))
                    cbLaboratory.SelectedItem = laboratory.TrimStart();


Athe combobox is still empty. i even directly put this cbLaboratory.SelectedItem = "FBS"; but still not working.. is it possible to display multiple selecteditems?
