Thomson Offers Biologists Tools For
Cell Growth, Protein & DNA Purification, Cell Clarification & Analysis
Working with scientists has led to Thomson developing innovative products for cell expansion, bioprocessing and analysis including
with higher working volumes and improved aeration increase efficiency for expansion of mammalian cells insect cells, E. coli and other microbial cells.
Specialty Shake Flasks
with multifunctional feed, transfer and sampling ports serve as mini-bioreactors reducing your media costs and save shaker space
for seeding larger Wave Bags and fermenters as well as for filling flasks with media from a bulk source provide time and cost savings keeping your lab operations running smoothly
designed for seeding suspension cell culture, bioassay and storage applications, or both biological and analytical sample preparation
Optimum Growth® System
For Mammalian & Insect Cell Culture with 50-60% Fill Volume!
The Optimum Growth® System consists of high efficiency shake & special flasks, transfer caps and the Rapid Clear® Cap for media clarification prior to protein purification. The modular design of the Optimum Growth® System allows components to be used interchangeably and assures that small scale bioprocessing projects remain GMP-compliant.
Inversion & BiDirectional Transfer Caps with connection options perfectly suited to fit your downstream Wave Bag or Bioprocessor applications. See Thomson Transfer Caps
Optimum Growth® FlaskOptimum Growth® Special Flasks
Optimum Growth® Shake & Special Flasks
Thomson Optimum Growth® Flasks (patented) for mammalian and insect cell culture are much more efficient than traditional shake flasks due in part to the fact that they support a 50-60% fill volume versus 33% fill volume in traditional flasks.
Optimum Growth® Special Flasks were designed with the unique needs of small- to medium-scale bioprocessing applications
Rapid Clear® Cap
Quickly and efficiently clarify cell culture media directly from the Thomson 5L Optimum Growth® shaker flask without the need for centrifugation. See Thomson Rapid Clear® Cap
Ultra Yield® System
The Ultra Yield® System consists of three components: Ultra Yield® Flasks, AirOtop® Enhanced Seals and Plasmid+® Enriched Media. Superior results are achieved when all three components are used simultaneously.
Ultra Yield® Flasks
Enhance the growth of E. coli and other microbial cells up to 10x over traditional flasks and are available in standardized volumes of 125mL, 250mL, 500mL, 1.5L and 2.5L
AirOtop® Enhanced Seals
And Vented Screw Caps provide a consistent sterile gas-permeable barrier alternative to foil or cotton plugs
Plasmid+® Enriched media
Is animal product-free and adds all the essential nutrients required to support the enhanced cell growth obtained by using Ultra Yield® Flasks
Ultra Yield® BiDirectional Transfer Cap
In addition, when it comes time to harvest flask contents or transfer to larger fermenters Thomson manufactures a single-use Ultra Yield® BiDirectional Transfer Cap for the 1.5L and 2.5L Ultra Yield® Flasks. This aseptic transfer system keeps your process sterile and GMP-compliant
Well Plates & Filter Plates
cell culture screening and scale-up
A cross section of 24- and 96-well plates for many different applications including cell culture screening and scale-up to our Ultra Yield® or Optimum Growth® Flask systems and Filter Plates, ideal for biological as well as analytical sample preparation.
Thomson Well Plates represent a cross section of 24- and 96-well plates for many different applications including cell culture screening and scale-up to your choice of Optimum Growth® Flasks for Mammalian / Insect Cells or Ultra Yield® Flasks for E. coli / Microbial Cell Culture:
Cell Growth and Expansion
Robotic Liquid-Handling Systems
Thomson Filter Plates in both 24- and 96-well configurations are ideal for biological as well as analytical sample preparation. Depending on your application we may recommend using a positive pressure manifold, centrifugation or a high efficiency Vacuum Manifold that connects directly to your house vacuum.
Rapid Clear® Filter Plates suited to clarifying cell culture
Polypropylene fiber Filter Plates support resins that are used in Solid Phase Extraction
PVDF and PTFE Filter Plates are similar in principle to Thomson Filter Vials
