Corning® Disposable Spinner Flasks

Corning® disposable spinner flasks have a 70mm top cap and two 45° angled sidearms. Culture flask comes ready-to-use with a paddle and integrated magnet, eliminating the need for time-consuming assembly or cleaning and reassembly. Molded from virgin polystyrene and gamma-irradiated, each spinner flask system assures a clean and sterile unit that is nonpyrogenic. The flask is made of USP Class VI and ISO 10993-18 polystyrene, and the vessel is comparable to conventional glass spinner flasks for growth of suspension cell lines and any attachment-dependent cultures using microcarrier beads. The paddle size and height is optimized for this 125mL size. A unique integrated magnet provides a smooth, even rotation at required speeds on any laboratory slow speed stirrer. Heat build-up in the vessel is reduced by means of a specially designed flange that raises the vessel off the stir-plate surface. This flared base also provides extra stability and support. Single use only. Flask cannot be autoclaved or resterilized with alcohol. Any attempt to do so will result in degradation of the materials.
