Tissue culture range overcomes in vitro cell culture difficulties

Sterilin : 18 July, 2008  (New Product)
The Iwaki range of tissue culture products from Sterilin consists of standard non-treated and tissue culture treated ware and features a range of substrate coated products developed to combat problems associated with in vitro cell culture.
Standard cell culture products are not suitable for all application and problems often arise when attempting to culture cells in vitro, as a result of encouraging them to grow on an unnatural plastic or glass base rather than on the macromolecular connective tissue which normally binds them together in vivo. This connective tissue, known as the extracellular matrix, generally consists of proteins, polysaccharides and proteoglycans. When cultured in contact with extracellular matrix proteins, cells that are usually difficult to nurture in artificial environments will form a monolayer of cells showing improved cell attachment and growth.

The Iwaki coated ware range has significant benefits over non-coated tissue culture products, and in-house coated products such as ensuring reproducibility and consistency of results. In addition, the Iwaki product range offers considerable time savings over 'home-made' products and will demonstrate lower serum requirements. The culture substrates available in the Iwaki range include Collagen Type 1, Fibronectin, Gelatin and Poly-L-Lysine and Polyethylene Imine and Iwaki's thin collagen gel membrane.

The Iwaki branded tissue culture products are signified by their distinctive purple cap.
