    • Ridged grip area ensures a secure grasp and prevents from accidentally lifting off the lid
    • Easy to read alpha-numerical labelling between the wells for easy orientation during microscopy
      • Clear alphanumerics between well bottoms and black alphanumerics on the surface of the plate
    • Absolutely flat growth surface promotes uniform cell growth without clumping
    • All TPP plate sizes (6, 12, 24, and 96-well) stack securely together
    • Crystal clear transparency allowing for high quality microscopy images
    • Treated only on well bottoms to promote cell attachment and proliferation
    • Sloped edge allows placement of the lid in one position only
    • Textured grip areas ensure a secure grasp and prevent accidental lift off of the lid
    • 2 well geometries available for the 96 well plates: F-base (flat bottom) and U-base (U bottom)

    Quality Assurance:

      • Made from optically clear polystyrene for excellent viewing
      • Sterile, packaged individually or in convenient multipacks

Premium TPP Tissue Culture Flasks with Vented Caps

Innovative features and outstanding cell growth properties make the TPP Tissue Culture Flasks the ideal choice for adherent cell culture in academia and industry.
 

  • Cell growth surface
    • Uniform flat growth surface promotes cell growth without clumping
    • Growth area is opto-mechanically treated to promote cell adhesion and growth
  • Lifted base
    • Stable, slip-free stacking of multiple TPP flasks
    • Allows for air flow between flasks to prevent condensation buildup
      • Resulting in uniform temperature and CO2 distribution
  • Crystal clear transparency for great microscopy images!
  • Geometry of the neck reduces risk of media slop over
  • Geometry of the neck guarantees total access of TPP pipettes, TPP scrappers and the TPP spatula. No dead corners = 100% cell retrieval.
  • White and accurate Vol graduations for optic control of the filling Vol.
  • Highly visible bilateral marking area
  • Vented cap settings for "on" at 12 o'clock position and "off" at 3 o'clock position.


Additional Advantages

Flasks are available in either filter cap or vented cap:

The TPP Click

1. A click and the <> screw cap is in the <> aeration-position.
Visual control: the slightly raised rectangle is at 12 o'clock.
2. Turn <> screw cap clockwise 90° to close the flask gas-tight closed.
Visual control: the slightly raised rectangle is at 3 o'clock.

Filter Membrane in Filter Screw Cap
The filter screw caps feature a hydrophobic PTFE membrane with a pore size of 0.22 µm. This offers protection - as the hydrophobic characteristics repel any fluid - with optimal gas exchange at the same time.


Quality Assurance:

  • Made from optically clear polystyrene for excellent viewing
  • Sterile, packaged in gamma irradiated, sterile sleeves
  • Certified DNAse/RNAse, nucleic acid, and pyrogen-free

TPP TubeSpin® Bioreactors have a proven track record in large scale screening and optimization processes of suspension cells. The optimization of the parameters, important for production up-scaling, can be evaluated with small amounts maximizing the number of parallel experiments at the same time.

Suspension cells ranging from immune cells to insect cells and microorganisms like E.coli to yeast can be cultured and centrifuged in TubeSpin® Bioreactors, eliminating the need for transferring before spinning down.
 
Features:

  • working Vol 1-35mL
    • easy to start small suspension cell cultures from frozen
    • ergonomic use of bacterial and yeast cultures -- static and shaking
  • conical bottom
  • 0.2µM filter membrane
    • Sterile gas exchange
  • 5 openings
    • (A, B, C, D, E) of different size above the gas permeable, sterile PTFE filter of the screw cap
    • Openings can be sealed to adjust gas exchange according to need
  • Fits in standard 15ml centrifuge rotors
    • Saves costs of culture start-ups in erlenmyer flasks and then transfer to conical tubes
    • Culture and spin in a single tube

Advantages:

    • Great gas exchange throughout the culture
      • Defined ventilation
    • Flexible working Vol with one type of tube
      • No transfer stage - Spin down in the same tube
    • Large-scale parallel experiments
      • Rapid sampling following centrifugation, and the tube is disposable
      • No internal stirring mechanism to damage cells or produce foam
    • Less incubator or hood space needed; when compared to a T75
      • Less plastic usage and less plastic waste
      • Easier withdrawal from tube than a flask


Bacterial and Microbiological Cultures
TPP TubeSpin Bioreactors are ideally suited for the culture of bacteria, yeast, and other microbiological organisms in suspension.  The simple, disposable format offers convenience and time-savings over traditional glass vessels such as test tubes which must be washed and autoclaved before each use.  Both aerobic and anaerobic cultures can be grown by selectively covering the holes in the 0.22um filter cap.  1-35mL of culture can be grown in each TubeSpin bioreactor, offering the flexibility to perform mini plasmid preps, small-scale candidate screens, or other downstream applications.

The simple 50mL tube design contains no internal mixing or stirring mechanism which minimizes cell shearing and foam formation, and agitation is provided by shaking in a CO2 shaking incubator. In this manner, hundreds of cell cultivations can be performed quickly and efficiently in parallel.


Water loss
If small culture Vols are incubated over a longer period of time, the loss of water influences the growth of cells.

By the closure of one or several openings above the gas permeable and sterile PTFE membrane, this water loss can be minimized.

Sterile gas exchange is guaranteed through the 0.22 µm pore size PTFE filter membrane.

Literature and comprehensive information about shaking technology can be found in the "Forum Shaking Technology", a cooperation of TPP with competent partner companies.

Features of TPP Tissue Culture Flask with re-closable Lid 115 / 150 cm2:

  • Multi-use re-closable liquid-tight lid
  • Complete access to flask chamber from above
  • Safe, stable, slip-free stacking of multiple flasks
  • Optionally available with barriers with additional safety zone

It is important that only filter screw caps are employed. An internal pressure of more than 0.03 bar (0,00043 psi) in the flask without pressure equalization might raise the lid and result in leakage.

Features of TPP Tissue Culture Flask with peel-off Foil 25 - 300 cm2:

  • Available in all sizes: 25 - 300 cm2
  • Large pinched flap for a firm grip
  • Foil is peeled off before access to the cultivation chamber
  • Strong welding of peel-off foil
  • Multi-layer foil material
  • Stacking ring offers stable and slip-free stapling of several flasks
  • Optionally available with barrier

This flask cannot be re-closed after the foil has been peeled-off.
The foil is welded securely to the polystyrene carrier.
It is important to use only filter screw caps. An internal pressure of more than 0.03 bar (0,00043 psi) in the flask without pressure equalization might raise the foil and result in leakage.
 
Quality Assurance:

  • Made from optically clear polystyrene for excellent viewing
  • Sterile, packaged in gamma irradiated, sterile sleeves
