Application Note: Centrifugation Steps in the Cell Culture Process
24 June 2013
During various stages of the cell culturing process, centrifugation is frequently used to isolate extracellular products or to separate cells from their aqueous environment. Traditionally, cells and media are first transferred from a cell culture flask to a 15-mL or 50-mL conical tube before centrifugation. These transfer steps require operator labor and time, the cost of the transfer vessel, and introduce the potential for contamination during transfer.
