The Wheaton Modular Cell Production Apparatus is ideal for monolayer cell culture production in standard glass or plastic roller bottles. This unique cell culture growth equipment accepts roller bottles with a diameter from 108 to 121mm in diameter and up to 550mm in length. The apparatus consists of a roller drive unit and a 5-position roller deck. Different sized (original) configurations with up to nine decks.
Additional expansion decks can be added to any existing system up to a maximum of nine decks. Each deck holds five bottles. The apparatus can provide up to 75,000cm² total surface area for cell growth (with expansion up to 9-decks). All apparatus models also feature a locking speed-control knob which helps prevent accidental change in rotation speed. Each model is equipped with a powerful DC motor which includes Soft Start/Soft Stop speed control drives for bottle rotation through a series of durable non-slip belts. Bearing seizures are virtually eliminated through featured greaseless bearings which also prevent leaching. All-position drive models have a position traction drive system in which each roller is individually driven. The all-position drive can be field-retrofitted to standard-drive models using the all-position drive conversion kit (See Item #: WHE-348980). Each expansion deck conversion kit is furnished complete with 1/8-Inch Allen Wrench, four tooth pulleys and four drive belts. CE Marked, UL Listed & CSA Certified. Roller Bottle Speed Range: 0.25 to 5.3rpm. Single Deck Unit Dimensions: (W x D x H): 75.6 x 61.9 x 34.3cm. Expansion Deck Height: 18.1cm. Electrical Requirements: 120V, 50/6Hz, 35-watts. Max Ambient Temperature: 40°C (104°F). Single Deck Unit Weight: 70Lbs. Expansion Deck Weight: 21Lbs.
The Wheaton® R2P™ Roller Culture Apparatus is engineered for development and growth of cell culture from research to production quantities without having to change equipment and revalidate your protocol. The apparatus accepts glass or plastic roller bottles from 112mm to 121mm in diameter and up to 550mm in length. Furnished complete with all-position drive system, large digital display and keypad for user-friendly control, programmable soft start and stop with fixed or reversible rotation direction, 10-memory programmable settings and built-in monitoring with visual and audible alarms. Each deck holds up to five bottles. The roller apparatus offers the ability to start with as few as one deck (5 positions for bottles) and add up to 10 decks for a total of 55 bottle positions.
The Modular R2P™ Roller Culture Apparatus systems feature a larger spacing between the decks than the standard R2P™ systems for inserting and removing roller bottles more easily without disturbing cells adhering to bottle walls.
Additional expansion decks WHE-W348886 and WHE-W348888 are factory-installed and must be ordered with standard R2P™ or modular R2P™ systems. Expansion decks WHE-W348887 and WHE-W348889 are available for field installation. Both standard and modular apparatus systems are furnished without roller bottles which are available separately.
The Wheaton® Cost Buster high volume production roller apparatus provides the maximum amount of potential cell culture growth area available in the smallest amount of space. This is accomplished by reducing the spacing between decks. Controls and drive units are located on top of the unit, providing easy access for maintenance. The open frame design allows better air flow, which minimizes top-to-bottom temperature gradients. Cost busters can accommodate roller bottles from 110 to 121mm in diameter and up to 550mm in length. Each roller is driven by nonslip belts and pulleys for positive traction (especially important for use with lightweight plastic bottles). Maximum production capacity in a minimum amount of space. Soft start feature minimizes cell disruption. Maximum temperature for use is 40°C. Conforms to UL, CSA and CE standards. 1 year warranty. Roller bottles are available separately.
Wheaton® single deck mini bottle bench top roller culture apparatus is designed for small-scale mixing and agitation. This single-deck unit accommodates up to four roller bottles or culture media bottles within a 38 to 60mm diameter range and up to 240mm in length. The apparatus can also accommodate 38 x 200mm culture tubes for the growth and observation of single chicken or rat embryos. The apparatus features variable speed control from 3 to 45rpm (for 38mm diameter bottles) and 2 to 30rpm (for 60mm diameter bottles). Maximum Operating Temperature: 40°C (104°F). This space-saving roller culture apparatus has a small footprint and is ideal for use in standard incubators and in coldrooms. (Warning: Use in a CO2 environment may reduce motor brush life.) Voltage: 120VAC. 4-Bottle Positions.
The Wheaton® benchtop small roller culture apparatus is an extremely compact unit with adjustable rollers and requires very little benchtop space. The conventional type rack is designed to handle two roller culture bottles between 108 to 121mm in diameter and up to 290mm long. The two outside rollers can be moved inward to accommodate bottles as small as 75mm in diameter. Designed for research work and may be used in a CO2 incubator. Bottle Speed: 0.1 to 3.8rpm (based on a 110mm bottle). Maximum Operating Temperature: 40°C (104°F). Electrical Requirements: 120VAC.
The Wheaton® Roll-In standard incubator is a convenient, space-saving and economical alternative to a warm room for small production runs. Designed to hold full size Wheaton Roller Culture Apparatus units. Incubator can also be used in combination with optional shelves to accommodate spinner flasks, rocker tables and other types of cell culture laboratory equipment. Double-walled construction provides for temperature stability and easy cleaning. Incubator features forced-air circulation with digital temperature control. Includes digital temperature control keypad with digital display of setpoint and actual temperature. Additional expansion shelves are sold separately. Incubator accepts up to a maximum of 12 expansion shelves. (See Wheaton# 753685 to order expansion shelves).
