Cell Cultivation System - Model Cellspin INTEGRA BIOSCIENCES
The modular system for laboratory-scale cell cultivation
The CELLROLL and CELLSPIN systems are based on a modular assembly concept that allows you to configure and combine
the two instruments according to your needs. Using only one control unit it is possible to operate two CELLROLL drive units or
two CELLSPIN stirring platforms or a combination of one instrument each. The control unit automatically recognises the type of
instrument connected and allows you to independently store ten different cell cultivation programs for each unit.
Optimised for cell cultivation
An optimised culture protocol is a key factor for successful cultivation
of cells. CELLSPIN allows you to precisely set parameters
such as stirring speed and pause intervals. The speed
ranges from 5 to 75 rpm and can be adjusted in steps of 2.5
rpm (5-40 rpm) or in steps of 5 rpm (40-75 rpm).
The CELLSPIN spinner flasks are designed to provide a high
surface to volume ratio ensuring improved oxygenation over
standard designs. The unique stirring mechanism of the CELLSPIN
spinner flasks relies on two glass pendula which guarantee
low shear forces while maintaining optimum mixing. As
most cells are very sensitive to overheating, the stirring platform
design prevents any release and transfer of heat to the
cell suspension. Owing to these specific measures aimed at
gentle cell cultivation, high yield expression from even the most
sensitive cell lines is possible.
Adaptable to your specific needs
On each CELLSPIN stirring platform up to four spinner flasks
can be employed independently of their size. The CELLSPIN
spinner flasks are available in four different sizes – 100 ml,
250 ml, 500 ml and 1000 ml – to match individual needs of
cultivation scale. Using the conversion kit for impeller-type
flasks, the individual stirring positions of the stirring unit can
easily be adapted for use with other spinner flasks.
