With EASYstrainer™ Greiner Bio-One introduces a novel product for fast and safe filtration of cell suspensions such as after tissue dissociation or in preparation of flow cytometry. The filter is suitable for all standard 50 ml tubes and is available in filter mesh widths of 40, 70 and 100 μm.
The innovative design of EASYstrainer™ allows for secure aseptic handling with a clearly reduced risk of contaminating the filtered cell suspension. In particular, a circumferential mantle surface and an additional handle can be used to grip the device firmly without getting in contact with the wetted filter material. Furthermore, the single blister pack allows for convenient and aseptic removal of the strainer. A striking feature of EASYstrainer™ is its venting slot between tube and filter. This feature guarantees air leaving the tube readily while filtrated solution flows through the mesh. Thus, problems seen with other strainer brands such as liquid trapping between tube and filter as well as overspill of cell suspension are things of the past.
• Three color-coded mesh sizes • Fits all standard 50 ml tubes • Handle and mantle surface for improved aseptic handling • Venting slot for fast filtration • No liquid overspill • Convenient blister pack

Why Do Some Infections Persist? In preparing for the possibility of an antibiotic onslaught, some bacterial cultures adopt an all-for-one/one-for-all strategy that would make a socialist proud, University of Vermont researchers have found. ASCB: A CELLebration of Cell Biology The last major congress of the year, ASCB is less a platform for launching new products, but one for confirming and consolidating the trends that have emerged over the past 12 months. Squeezing Cells into Stem Cells EPFL scientists have developed a new method that helps cells turn in usable stem cells. The new approach involves “squeezing” cells with a gel, and paves the way for large-scale production of stem cells for medical purposes.
