Strainer Bag

Sterile processing of tissue samples for primary cell preparation

Seward Ltd, Worthing, West Sussex, UK, has expanded the application range of its Strainer bags to include sterile processing of tissue samples for primary cell preparation. The Strainer bags are fully compatible with all laboratory paddle blenders, including Seward’s Stomacher® 80 Biomaster range. The 0.5-mm pore size of the integrated strainer element within the Seward Strainer bag generates a uniformly homogenous cell suspension. This allows the cells’ passage through the pores of the central straining matrix and prevents contamination with undigested extracellular material, which can block pipettes. The bag is produced to provide a sterile, secure environment for the preparation of single-cell suspensions.

Optical Table Isolation System

Achieves low net vertical natural frequency

Achieves low net vertical natural frequencyKinetic Systems Inc, Boston, offers the low-natural-frequency optical table isolation support system. Due to its Minus K® negative-stiffness technology, the MK52 optical table isolation support system achieves low net vertical natural frequency without limiting its ability to support static loads. Horizontal isolation is provided by beam columns that are connected in series with the vertical-motion isolator. When adjusted to a ½-Hz natural frequency, the MK52 achieves 93% isolation efficiency at 2 Hz, 99% at 5 Hz, and 99.7% at 10 Hz. Ultra-low natural frequencies, high internal structural frequencies, and vertical and horizontal isolation efficiencies make the system well-suited to applications such as analytical balances, cell injection, confocal microscopes, patch clamping, optical microscopes, wafer probing, sensor calibration, and laser applications. The system is available in table sizes up to 4 x 8 feet with gross load capacities up to 2,000 pounds (909 Kg).
