Porvair’s Novel Sintered Porous Plastic Encourage In-vitro Cell Culture Growth
Product News Dec 09, 2010
Porvair Filtration Group reports that the open pore structure of their BioVyon™ sintered porous plastic materials offers optimum conditions for encouraging in-vitro cell culture and has been found to offer advantages over established Petri dish methods as well as the ceramic substrates (TCP) traditionally used.
The efficient transfer of oxygen is essential for cell culture. The uniform porosity and pore size of BioVyon™ materials produces the consistent and uniform bubble sizes and patterns required to achieve superb oxygen transfer. Products can be made in tubes or flat sheet for OEM customers. BioVyon™ materials are manufactured under cGMP conditions enabling achievement of the highest cleanliness standards demanded by these applications and have USP Class 6 regulatory approval.
Results are presented for applications using BioVyon™ scaffolds to accelerate oesteoblast (bone cell) proliferation and provide efficient and accurate differentiation of adult and embryonic stem cells.
Manufactured in an ISO accredited clean room environment - BioVyon™ sintered porous plastics offer the high degree of biocompatibility and bio-safety required by many life science and healthcare applications.
