Air liquid interface culture for COVID-19 research

We and our supplier, Greiner Bio-One, are pleased to share a publication with you which was recently published in the renown EMBO journal and deals with ThinCert cell culture inserts as a useful tool for COVID-19 research. Please refer to the attached document ‘Air liquid interface cultures for COVID_19 research’ for a simple to understand summary of this paper.

As this study (full text also in the attachment, embj.20105114 (1) (002) via LINK) emphasizes the possibilities and advantages of air lift cultures for COVID-19 research, it may inspire other COVID researchers and help them to expand their spectrum of methodology. Scientists may consider to utilize organotypic cultures instead of/ in addition to real lung tissue.

New product – Ergonomic LidTwister

Reduce hands and arms injuries with the new LidTwister from In Vitro.

The LidTwister is designed to twist the lid on and off, on standard plastic centrifuge tubes in the sizes of 15 and 50 ml.
The LidTwister is a great help to laboratory staff who daily repeat the unhealthy movement by turning the centrifuge lids on and off. The many twists throughout the day can result in permanent hand and arm injuries over the years. Some of these damages can now be eliminated by the LidTwister.

The LidTwister is very easy to operate. You simply place the tube in the holder, close the door, and the device turns off the lid of the centrifuge tube and leaves it loosely on top. Likewise, the devise turns the lid back on. The LidTwister are reliable and ensures a uniform and tight screwing of the centrifuge lids every time.

A device as the LidTwister is the right investment for a laboratory that wishes to take care of its employees and be leading with an ergonomically correct laboratory solution. For more detailed information on the LidTwister please contact Kim Bidsted at In Vitro, kb@in-vitro.dk or +4530507004

Cell culture flask for automated systems - AutoFlask™ from Greiner Bio-One 

Greiner Bio-One, in collaboration with the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research foundation (GNF), San Diego (USA), has developed the unique AutoFlask™, designed for automated tissue culture. The external dimensions comply with ANSI standards to render the flask suitable for use on a wide range of cell culture and liquid handling systems. Sterility of the flask content is ensured during solution exchanges through a robot accessible pre-scored multiple entry septum. The oval design facilitates a specified slit position and maximal slit length to permit septum piercing with disposable plastic tips. The novel centrifugation pocket enables separation of cells from supernatant inside the flask minimising the risk of contamination. The integrated hydrophobic filter ensures adequate gas exchange during
cultivation of even very sensitive cells.
