Reducing cell culture contamination with versatile pipettes
19 Nov 2021
INTEGRA Biosciences supplies a comprehensive range of liquid handling tools suitable for sterile cell biology workflows, each designed to fit comfortably under a laminar flow hood to reduce the risk of cell culture contamination.
Paired with the company’s GripTip pipette tips, which meet the highest sterility requirements thanks to the VIAPURE Statement of Quality, cell biologists can have complete confidence in their cell handling.
Contamination, whether from the environment or from the crossing of cell lines, can have significant consequences for the reliability of results and the validity of scientific conclusions. INTEGRA has developed its liquid handling solutions with this in mind, starting with the VIAFILL media dispenser, which is designed to provide non-contact dispensing for the filling of microplates and/or seeding of cells to reduce the risk of contamination.
The easy-to-clean and compact design of the company’s electronic pipettes – VIAFLO, VOYAGER, MINI 96, VIAFLO 96 and VIAFLO 384 – enables safe use under a laminar flow hood, helping to ensure sterile handling. Combined with Sterile, Filter GripTip pipette tips – which form the perfect seal with each pipette so that they never leak or fall off – the risk of cross-contamination and aerosol formation is virtually eliminated.
Pairing a VIAFLO or VOYAGER pipette with the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot reduces user contact and risk of human error even more, offering a completely walkaway solution for cell biology applications.
