Corning® Proculture® spinner flasks. Side baffles enhance aeration and agitation of flask contents while patented "stretch" impeller design ensures optimal stirring. Vessels are borosilicate glass and other parts are constructed of rugged FDA approved materials (screw caps are orange polypropylene). Consistent height to width ratios for greater predictability in scale up across the full range of vessel sizes. The 125 and 250mL sizes have 32 GL thread finish; all other sizes have 45 GL thread finish.
Choose between flasks with vertical or angled sidearms. Wide, vertical sidearms permit use with fittings and probes for feeding and harvesting of cells while angled sidearms permit easy access of 25 and 50mL pipets. Available with Shur-Loc® cap assembly.
Autoclavable sidearms fittings are available for gas delivery, media handling, and probe insertion. Gas delivery and media handling fittings enhance productivity of cell culture, while probe insertion fittings secure oxygen, temperature, or pH sensors in flasks to monitor cell culture parameters. All fittings operate as bioreactors when used together and attached to appropriate cell culture controllers. Fittings are comprised of PET insert with Viton® O-ring, stainless steel tubes held in place by Noryl® nuts with integrated ferrules, and 45mm polypropylene sealing cap. Fitting 89090-016 features a high temperature resistant EPDM O-ring.
