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

  • Shake Flasks

    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

  • Transfer Caps

    for seeding larger 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

  • Plates

    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 cell culture 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.

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

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.

Plasmid+®

Plasmid+® Enriched media

Is animal orgin free and adds all the essential nutrients required to support the enhanced cell growth obtained by using Ultra Yield® Flasks

BiDirectional Transfer Cap

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

Filter Plates

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
