Reduce cell culture contamination using INTEGRA’s versatile pipes

INTEGRA Biosciences, a leader in the field of high-end laboratory equipment offers a variety of liquid handling tools that are perfect to aid in the workflow of sterile cells. Each piece of equipment, such as robotic pipetting systems, media dispensers and electronic pipettes, has been specifically designed to fit under a laminated flow hood to minimize the risk of contamination of cell cultures. When paired with the company’s GripTip pipette tips, which have the highest standards for sterility due to the VIAPURE Statement of Quality Cell biologists can have complete confidence in their handling of their cells.

Contamination, whether from the environment or the crossing of cell lines, can have a significant impact on the reliability of the results and the validity of scientific conclusions. More than 15 percent of cell culture studies are based on incorrectly identified or cross-contaminated cells lines. The likelihood of biological contamination will increase. This is why INTEGRA developed its liquid handling solutions. The VIAFILL media dispenser has been designed to allow non-contact dispensing to fill microplates or seed cells, thereby decreasing the risk of contamination.

The easy-to-clean and compact design of the electronic pipettes from the company – VIAFLO, VOYAGER, MINI 96, VIAFLO 96 and VIAFLO 384 – permits them to be used in a laminar flow hood and ensures that they are sterile in handling. Combined with Sterile, Filter GripTip pipette tips – which create the perfect seal on each pipette to ensure that they never leak or fall off – this effectively eliminates the risk of cross-contamination and aerosol formation. To reduce contact with users and the risk of human error, you can connect a VIAFLO or VYAGER pipette with the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot, which provides an all-in-one solution for cell biology applications.
