Themes at this year's meeting ranged from the verification, validation, and sharing of data, to the translation of laboratory findings into actionable clinical results.
Stem Cells in Drug Discovery
Potential Source of Unlimited Human Test Cells, but Roadblocks Remain.
Automated Low Volume Dispensing Trends
Gain a better understanding of the current and future market requirements for fully automated LVD systems.
Cancer Genetics: Key to Diagnosis, Therapy
When applied judiciously, cancer genetics directs caregivers to the right drug at the right time, while sparing patients of unnecessary or harmful treatments.
Designer Cell Fate Switches Could Streamline Stem Cell Biology
Researchers develop new method of reprogramming cells between cell types in a more efficient way than before.
Gene Therapy Maintains Clotting Factor for Hemophilia Patients
Following a single gene therapy dose, the highest levels of an essential blood clotting factor IX were observed in hemophilia B patients.
More Effective Strategy for Producing Flu Vaccines
Researchers have developed a virus backbone, allowing producers to grow vaccine viruses in mammalian cells, rather than in eggs.
Soil Carbon Release Might Equal U.S. Emissions
Research suggests 55M tons of carbon will be release from soils by 2050, 17% higher than prjected emissions.
Inspiring Futuristic Innovation: Brain ‘Organoids’
Scientists create artificial brains, providing an advanced model for studying brain tumour development.

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.
