  • 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 has an optical transmission of greater than 95%. 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, and is chemically and biologically inert, 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.

The part numbers have changed for PermaLife products. Where can I learn about the change to the PermaLife Bag?

OriGen Biomedical published a Technical Bulletin regarding the PermaLife product code changes in November 2017. The previous PermaLife bags came with a green vent cap which has now been eliminated from the “2G” PermaLife bags. More information regarding the rationale for the removal of the green vent cap can be found on the Technical Bulletin page under the title: November 2017 – PermaLife Green Vent Cap Removal. Login or registration is required to access the page.

In cell culture - what is the benefit of using a bag vs a flask?

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 humidifed incubators are not required.

What is the expiration date of PermaLife Products?

PermaLife Products: 4 years
