We offer a variety of cell culture supplies that specifically support the needs of researchers working with cell culture applications such as 3D cell proliferation, cell and tissue culture, cell preservation and storage, cell visualization, scale-up cell culture, and stem cell and tissue engineering.
Cell culture flasks, plates, and dishes are specifically designed for the growth and propagation of microbial, insect, or mammalian cells. We offer glass and plastic culture flasks for shaker cultures, tissue culture flasks for adherent and suspension cells, bioreactor flasks for monoclonal antibody (mAb) and protein production, petri dishes and culture dishes for microbiology and microscopy of living and fixed cells, disposable and reusable spinner flasks for suspension cell cultures, and cell culture plates for growth optimization and treatment from leading suppliers including Millicell®, Corning®, Brand®, Eppendorf®, Nunc®, Nalgene®, TPP®, Pyrex®, Wheaton®, and Greiner Bio-One.
Cell culture permeable supports and inserts feature membranes that allow easy access to both the apical and basolateral sides of cells, producing a cell culture environment that more closely resembles an in vivo state.
We carry a broad portfolio of three-dimensional cell culture systems including MaxGel™ human Extracellular Matrix (ECM), HydroMatrix™ synthetic peptide, and mouse ECM, to support stem cell and other cell cultures. These products provide three-dimensional environments in which cells are better able to mimic their in vivo counterparts.
Serological pipets are commonly used in serology and cell culture to measure and dispense milliliter amounts of liquid. Available in glass or plastic, they typically have graduations for accurately measuring meniscus levels and are available sterile for aseptic cell culturing procedures. Cotton plug options are available to prevent overfilling and contamination. Large tip pipets are available for pipetting viscous liquids and suspensions.
Cell lifters are long-handled devices with angled heads used to harvest cells from cell culture flasks and dishes and are available in varying lengths and designs. Cell spreaders are designed for spreading cultures and media across the surface of agar plates.
Microfluidic devices for cell culture, including 3D chips and organ-on-a-chip technologies, permit the study of small numbers of cells in a 3D environment. Their use allows implementation of chemical gradients, continuous flow of fresh media, high throughput testing, and direct coupling to analytical instruments. Because microfluidic devices require small volumes of culture media and small quantities of cells, these technologies decrease costs and enable studies to be conducted when the cell source is limited.
