VueLife Adherent Culture Bags (“AC” Bags) utilize a treated form of fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) film. This proprietary surface treatment results in the VueLife “AC” Bag interior having a higher surface energy than the VueLife “C” Bag. The modified surface of the VueLife “AC” Bag is meant to better promote cell and protein adhesion to the surface of the bag. VueLife bags are made from the highest quality USP Class VI FEP material and provide high permeability to oxygen and carbon dioxide whilst remaining impermeable to water for improved culture and expansion.
Each “AC” series bag typically features a needle-less injection site and a “Y” connector with PVC tubing leading to a female luer and a heat-sealed sterile docking tube to greatly reduce the risk of culture contamination while allowing easy access for the introduction of new material. Other types of ports, tubing and connections are available and can be customized to the needs of the user.
