Strainer bags enable sterile processing of tissue
Seward, manufacturer of the Stomacher Paddle Blender range, has enhanced the application range of its strainer bags to include sterile processing of tissue samples for primary cell preparation.
Gamma-irradiated sterile and available in a range of sizes, the strainer bags are fully compatible with all laboratory paddle blenders, including Seward's Stomacher 80 Biomaster range.
As the strainer bags are effectively small, fully containable units that are easily used in a sterile environment, this has enabled new applications in cell culture.
The 0.5mm pore size of the integrated, robust strainer element within the Seward Strainer bag generates a uniformly homogenous cell suspension.
This allows the cells' passage through the pores of the central straining matrix and prevents contamination with undigested extracellular material, which can block pipettes.
Produced to provide a sterile, secure environment for the preparation of single-cell suspensions, the Strainer bag is suitable for the individual processing of a large number of samples.
The strainer bags can increase the efficiency of the preparation of primary cells from digested tissues.
