Corning cell culture flasks are manufactured under strict process controls for consistent product performance.
Manufactured from optically clear virgin polystyrene, they are treated for optimal cell attachment. Proprietary Corning® CellBIND® surface treatment prmotes enhanced cell attachment. CellBIND cell culture surface may eliminate the need to use poly-D-lysine or other coatings to improve cell attachment.
The U-shaped 150 cm2 flask is shorter in height and has a wider diameter opening than its rectangular counterpart, allowing for better access with cell scrapers and serological pipets.
Three styles of caps are available: Plug Seal (Plug), Phenolic-Style (PS) and Vent Cap (Vent).
Vent caps contain a 0.2 µm non-wettable membrane sealed to the cap, providing consistent, sterile gas exchange while minimizing the risk of contamination. Caps are recommended for use in all CO2 incubators, especially for long-term use.
Phenolic-style caps are designed (when loosened) for use in open systems requiring gas exchange. With the caps slightly loosened, gas is exchanged between the environments inside and outside of the flask.
