Tissue Cell Culture Flask Caps
Vented Caps: When the vented screw cap is tightened to the end position, the closed tissue culture flask is liquid and gas tight. By simply unscrewing the cap one quarter of a turn, the flask is in the "VENT" position, with the inside of the flask being aerated through a defined gap opening. This guarantees that the gas exchange with the environment and the possible risk of contamination are kept to a minimum. In addition, the special flat thread profile of the caps stops excess tightening and thus allows the caps to be re-used multiple times.
Filtered Caps: The TPP filter cap has a welded membrane in the
cap cavity to offer free gas exchange without gas flow alteration. For
optimal flask breathing, all membranes are proportionally dimensioned
to each cap size. The microporous hydrophobic membrane (cytotoxic free)
itself is constructed of 2 layers of membrane material based on a white
acrylic copolymer over nylon support. With an airflow rate of 4.5 (LPM/3.7cm2/13.5psi),
the gas exchange properties of the filtered flasks are comparable to that
of the standard cap flasks.
