Fill, Ventilate and Achieve Optimum Growth
The CELLdisc cell culture vessel offers large growth surfaces on a small footprint and facilitates the scale-up of mass cell cultures.
Greiner Bio-One, a technology partner for the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industry, presents CELLdisc, a new multilayer cell culture vessel that offers a growth area of up to one square metre for adherent mammalian cells on a minimal footprint. Its compact, robust and cylindrical design means CELLdisc is just as suited to smaller test series as it is for automation and the quantifiable scale-up of mass cell cultures in sizes of be- tween 1,000 and 10,000 square centimetres.
The innovative ergonomic design of CELLdisc significantly simplifies the cultivation of mamma- lian cells. Each unit is ventilated via a central gas channel which allows the media within to be either passively or actively gassed. Both incoming and exiting gas lines have integrated air fil- ters which, along with an optimised surface treatment, combine to support maximum cell growth.
Fill, tilt and turn
The CELLdisc concept requires only a few steps to create a cell culture – fill with cell suspen- sion, close the screw cap, tilt by 90 degrees and wait until the fluid has spread evenly. Then simply turn again by 90 degrees, straighten up and place in the incubator. The CELLdisc ves- sels are available with 4, 8, 16 or 40 layers.
