Cell culture flask for automated systems

Greiner Bio-One, in collaboration with the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation (GNF), San Diego (USA), has developed the unique AutoFlask, designed for automated tissue culture. The external dimensions comply with ANSI standards to render the flask suitable for use on a wide range of cell culture and liquid handling systems. Sterility of the flask content is ensured during solution exchanges through a robot accessible pre-scored multiple entry septum. The oval design facilitates a specified slit position and maximal slit length to permit septum piercing with disposable plastic tips.

The novel centrifugation pocket enables separation of cells from supernatant inside the flask minimising the risk of contamination. The integrated hydrophobic filter ensures adequate gas exchange during cultivation of even very sensitive cells.

As with all Greiner Bio-One CELLSTAR® products the AutoFlask is made of high grade polystyrene and is guaranteed to be sterile, non-pyrogenic and free of detectable DNase, RNase and human DNA. Different surface treatments are provided for the cultivation of adherent cells.
