TPP Plastics

MIDSCI carries an extensive selection of superior quality TPP plastics built to boost cell health and provide reliable experimental results.

 

Our line of TPP products, including cell culture plasticware, are made from the highest purity TPP plastics and are innovatively modeled to improve the generation of consistent and reproducible data.

 

Ergonomically designed to offer better comfort and sample handling, our TPP plasticwares secure optimal cell retrieval for more efficient downstream applications.

 

Our TPP plastics, including cell and tissue cultureware, offer a flatter, more consistent growth surface for a more consistent monolayer as well.

 

Furthermore, insulated vents ensure even temperature distribution when stacked.

 

Finally, ridged gripping surface on dishes and plates facilitate handling, high visibility, painted alphanumerics, graduations and writing surfaces

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.

Key Features:

  • 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 repell 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.

  • 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

Nylon Membrane Disc Filter

  • Weak resistance for acidic conditions
  • Pore size: 0.45µm
  • Diameter size: 247mm
  • Non-sterile but autoclavable

Nylon membranes are naturally hydrophilic polymer.  They have broad chemical compatibility and low levels of extractables since the membranes do not contain any wetting agents, detergents or surfactants. They can be used in many different applications for filtering aqueous and organic solutions, even some aggressive solutions, such as acetonitrile (ACN), DMF and DMSO.

Nylon membranes are not good for acid solutions and tend to bind greater amounts of proteins and other macromolecules than other membranes. They are not recommended for protein recovery applications.

Applications:

  • General clean and filtration
  • Sample Prep
  • Environmental Monitoring and Analysis
  • Filtration of Aqueous and Organic Solutions
  • Fluid Monitoring
  • Pharmaceutical Products Analysis
  • Chromatography and Mass Spec Sample Prep
  • Venting and Gas Filtration
