With support from Sabic, TriForest Labware has developed a polycarbonate 3L Fernbach flask that the company says is the first of its size made using the injection blow moulding process.
TriForest Labware, a moulder of laboratory equipment, has developed a polycarbonate 3L Fernbach flask that the company says is "virtually unbreakable" as a result of SABIC's Lexan HP grade.
Syed Rehan, VicePresident, TriForest Labware, said: "Without the exceptional properties provided by Lexan HP resin--optical clarity, impact resistance and the ability to be injection blow moulded--we would not have been able to make this 3L Fernbach flask."
The LABSTICKER adhesive mat was designed to replace clamps for holding Erlenmyer or Fernbach flasks, micro well plates, culture dishes, beakers, etc.
Fifty-milliliter cultures of B7 cells were grown at 35[degrees]C in 500-ml Fernbach flasks. The cultures were kept unshaken to avoid cell division stress (Hellung-Larsen and Lyhne, 1992).
The cell suspension was divided into aliquots as follows: 50 ml in each of four 500-ml Fernbach flasks (a); 80 ml in each of four 250-ml Ehrlenmeyer flasks (b); 80 ml in each of four 100-ml Ehrlenmeyer flasks (c); and finally, four 100-ml Ehrlenmeyer flasks filled to the top with the cell suspension (d).
Fifty-milliliter cultures of B7 cells were grown at 35[degrees]C in 500-ml Fernbach flasks. The cultures were left unagitated to avoid cell division stress (Hellung-Larsen and Lyhne, 1992).
