Cell culture is a vital technique in the life sciences. It involves the removal of cells, tissues, or organs from an animal or plant and subsequent placement in an artificial environment favourable to their survival and/or proliferation. Cell culture mainly used to diagnose infections, to test new drugs, and in research.
The most important and critical step in cell culture is choosing the right growth medium and reliable cell culture plasticware for in vitro cultivation. As a scientist, there is always a risk and multiple troubleshooting process along the research project, which lead to multiple attempts of failure, prolong the research period, and eventually affecting the whole research journey. Cell culture plasticwares are manufactured with variety of sizes, materials, and architecture. Hence, selecting a high quality and reliable type of plasticware is a must when it comes to cell culture work.
Plastic culture vessel is more effective to grow cells compared to glasses due to its ability to anchor growing cells and increasing cell proliferation significantly. Polystyrene (PS) is the common material used for culturing cells due to its plastic versatility properties (inert in chemistry/ low cost) and disposable, reducing the probability for cross contamination. However, cell culture plasticware made from Polystyrene (PS) tend to develop one key issues on cell or tissue culture adherent. Cell adherent are more readily to hydrophilic surface, compared to the hydrophobic surface from the Polystyrene (PS). Our cell culture plasticwares from Corning and Sorfa provide better adherent by providing cell culture flask, 96-well microplates and cell culture plate that have been modified using corona discharge and vacuum plasma to generate better surfaces for growing attached cells. With higher cell adherent, individual lot number traceability, and consistent surface chemistry (USP Class VI materials), now you can grow cells with reliable and high-quality cell culture plasticwares.
