Novel cell culture flasks improving the cultivation of embryonic stem cells

(PresseBox) ( Frickenhausen, )
At the SBS Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida, from 27 to 31 March 2011, Greiner Bio-One introduces cell culture flasks with a new polymer modification. This completes the company's Advanced TC product portfolio, which already includes dishes, multiwell plates and microplates. The innovative polymer modification changes the surface of cell culture vessels to improve cultivation of demanding cells and has a positive impact on their function and properties. This makes the surface ideal for cultivating embryonic stem cells.

New cell culture vessels with specially modified surfaces can make cell-based analytical methods more reliable and can have a positive effect on cell functionality. To successfully cultivate demanding cells such as primary and sensitive cells or cells subject to restrictive growth conditions, it is necessary to mimic their specific in vivo conditions as precisely as possible. The new innovative Advanced TC polymer modification offers this possibility: It alters the surface of cell culture vessels in a way that optimises both primary and long-term cell adhesion as well as the function and properties of cells. In comparison to conventional cell culture products Advanced TC products maximise cell yield by combining consistent and uniform cell adhesion with homogeneous cell growth. Based on their special features, the effectiveness of Advanced TC cell culture vessels is comparable to that of a biological surface in many applications. In contrast to biologically coated products Advanced TC cell culture vessels have a longer shelf life and can be transported and stored at room temperature.

Internal studies that are due to be published this year have shown that the polymer-modified surface is excellent for cultivating embryonic stem cells.

Advanced TCTM is a Greiner Bio-One GmbH product line.
