VueLife Products Overview
Saint-Gobain offers a complete line of USP Class VI fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) VueLife containers that are FDA 510(k) cleared and intended to be used for the containment of fluids and suspensions during transportation, processing, incubation, storage and cryopreservation. VueLife bags are an excellent choice for cell culture offering high permeability to oxygen and carbon dioxide, while remaining impermeable to water.
The VueLife Standard Culture Bags (“C” Bags) use an untreated form of FEP film. Conversely, VueLife Adherent Culture Bags (“AC” Bags) utilize a treated form of the FEP. 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.
Closed Culture System
VueLife C series and AC series culture bags feature a unique design that allows access to the culture in a closed-system environment, as each bag has at least one PVC tubing length that can be used with sterile docking equipment. This system greatly reduces the risk of culture contamination while allowing easy access for the introduction of new material.
Custom Bag Designs
Saint-Gobain’s proprietary laser welding technology allows for the creation of custom VueLife bags of virtually any shape with sizes ranging from 1mL to 50L. Saint-Gobain can also customize bags by substituting tubing available in the Saint-Gobain tubing line, including C-Flex® and Tygon®, as a replacement for the current standard PVC medical device tubing used on the culture bags.
