Mitochondria Shown to Trigger Cell Ageing
An international team of scientists has for the first time shown that mitochondria, the batteries of the cells, are essential for ageing.
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Editing of Embryos Approved in the UK
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has approved a research application from the Francis Crick Institute to use new "gene editing" techniques on human embryos.
Microbes Take Their Vitamins
Scientists exploit organisms' needs in order to track 'vitamin mimics' in bacteria.
Machine Learning Uncovers Unknown Bacterial Features
Technique robustly identified characteristic gene expression patterns in response to antibiotics, low oxygen conditions.
CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Advances Again
UC Berkeley researchers have made a major improvement in CRISPR-Cas9 technology that achieves an unprecedented success rate of 60 percent when replacing a short stretch of DNA with another.
Disrupting Cell’s Supply Chain Freezes Cancer Virus
When the cancer-causing Epstein-Barr virus moves into a B-cell of the human immune system, it tricks the cell into rapidly making more copies of itself, each of which will carry the virus.
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.

Effective Heat Sterilization in CO2 Incubators
Bookmark and Share

Thermo Electron Corporation

Contamination control and elimination have beena major concern in cell culture laboratories for over100 years. Though other technologies have beendeveloped over this period for instruments, devices,and textiles, dry heat sterilization has emerged asthe most useful contamination eliminationtechnology for equipment chamber surfaces. A dryheat sterilization cycle has now been validated forThermo Electron Corporation's Steri-Cycle® CO2Incubators. This sterilization cycle readily eliminatesthe vegetative microorganisms, as well as persistentfungal spores, of concern in cell culture laboratories.Cycle time is based on validation procedures usingcommercially available spore suspensions calibratedfor dry heat resistance. The spores were inoculatedonto chamber wall, door, and gasket materials.The inoculated materials were exposed at theminimum temperature (the coolest, and therefore leastlethal) observed in the incubator as determined byextensive mapping studies.The validated cycle time was based on the longestaverage time required to achieve a six-log reduction ofthe most resistant spore batch tested. This exposuretime was then more than doubled to establish asterilization cycle that exceeds the requirements formedical instruments.
