Product News: Corning Introduces the new HYPERFlask™ Cell Culture Vessel

27 Mar 2007


Corning Life Sciences, a global supplier of scientific laboratory and drug discovery products for more than 90 years, today announced details of their planned activities at the SBS 2007 congress.

Visit Corning’s booth 419 to see the latest new products:
  • Corning® Epic® System: Award-winning label-free detection technology for high-throughput biochemical and cell-based assays
  • Corning Labware with Ultra-Web® Synthetic nanofiber surface an innovative surface designed to improve the performance and functionality of diverse cell types
  • Corning HYPERFlask™ Cell Culture Vessel offering 1,720 cm2 growth area in the footprint of a traditional 175 cm2 flask.
    • This high yield, high performance flask utilizes a multilayered gas permeable growing surface for efficient gas exchange.
    • Innovative Design – 10 interconnected polystyrene growth surfaces
    • Optimal Growth – Corning CellBIND® Surface treated gas permeable polystyrene for superior cell attachment and growth
    • Increase Cell Yield – 10-fold higher cell yields increases productivity and capacity and reduces processing time and incubator space
    • Save Time and Space – Reduce processing time and incubator storage space by handling one flask as compared to 10 traditional 175 cm2 flasks
    • Automation Compatible – Bar coded and compatible with The Automation Partnership SelecT™ cell culture systems with an upgrade 
    • New Corning HYPERFlask Cell Culture Vessel has the same external dimensions as a standard T 175 cm2 flask with 10 times the cell yield.
