  • User Inspired Design

    A sterile, needle-free, luer-actuated adapter is attached to each bag. This self-sealing valve makes it easy to feed and harvest sensitive cells.
  • Gas Permeable – Water Impermeable

    Fluoroethyl polymer (FEP) film is gas permeable and gas transfer rates for oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen are well-established. However, FEP film is practically impermeable to water so water losses from the cell culture are negligible. Humidified incubators – potential sources of mold and contamination – are not necessary.
  • Observe Your Culture

    The PermaLife bag is transparent, allowing observation of the cell culture under a microscope without risking contamination of the culture. Observation of cell cultures under a microscope is easy and can be done without risking contamination of the sample.
  • Inert

    FEP film has no plasticizers, is chemically inert, and is biocompatible so the bag will not alter the culture or the medium. FEP film neither combines with any element, nor gives up any components of its own to the solution held in the cell culture bag.

In cell culture - what is the benefit of using a closed system?

Bags create a closed system that reduces possibility of contamination. Swabbable needle-free valves are provided that provide repeated sterile access (and prevent needle-sticks). Our cell culture bags have high optical transmission that allows for inspection of contents without risking contamination of the culture. The bags are gas permeable and provide high rates of oxygen transfer to cells under culture. Additionally, water permeability is very low, so water loss is negligible and humidified incubators are not required.

What are the dimensions of a particular PermaLife Bag?
