Saint-Gobain provides a wide variety of accessory items engineered to complement our cell culture bags, cryopreservation bags and overwraps, and fluid transfer assemblies. The product portfolio includes clamps, a sealer, culture and centrifuge cassettes, and culture racks.
The culture rack is meant to support cell culture containers during incubation and is highly recommended. The rack allows for VueLife® bags to be lifted off the incubator shelf to allow for gas flow through both the bottom and top of the bag, maximizing oxygen permeability into the bag.
Clamps are used to restrict the area within a VueLife® culture bag as needed for seeding and expanding cultures. As cells proliferate, the clamp is moved to accommodate additional media. Saint-Gobain clamps may also be used for closing KryoSure® cryopreservation bags and overwraps prior to heat sealing with the Saint-Gobain FEP 4 Impulse Sealer. Clamps are sold individually and come in a range of sizes.
The culture cassette is designed to hold bags during filling, incubation, and transport of culture. Similar to the culture rack, the cassette allows for gas flow through the bottom of the bag. Additionally, the spacing of the cassette is such to be able to maintain a 1cm fluid thickness during culturing.
The centrifuge cassette is for use with VueLife® 1PF-0045-150 bags, and similar sized bags. With its contained bag, the cassette will support fluids, cells and constructs during centrifugation.
