PDL flasks

For cells with low adherence or growth

  • Available in T25, T75, and T175 sizes

Poly-d-lysine (PDL) and collagen I coated flasks are ideal for adherent cultures of primary cells that are finicky and have difficulties attaching to the growth surface.

The uniform coating creates a positive charge on the surface that helps ensure cell attachment, growth and differentiation. Should be used when cell lines are difficult to grow and show low adherence or slowed growth even after optimization of growth conditions.

What factors should you consider when selecting a cell culture flask?

  Why EasYFlask is the optimal choice for cell culture and scale-up
Neck width Extra wide neck provides easier access to growth surface with scraper or pipette
Cap opening 1/3-turn cap enables one-handed operation and avoids wrist strains
Volume graduations Molded and printed for easy and quick measurement of growth media
Sterility assurance level (SAL) Sterility assurance of  SAL 10-6 guarantees that no more than one flask out of 1 million may be non-sterile
Lot-to-lot testing and certification in each case Lot specific testing across four cell lines and primary cells ensures consistency, reproducibility and reliability of quality; certificate included in each case
Airflow below flask Vented ribs on flask bottom enable optimal temperature equilibration
Robust design Thick walls provide robust design for better resistance to mechanical stress
Continuity of surface for scale up The Thermo Scientific™ Nunclon™ Delta surface—for maximum attachment and growth of adherent cultures—is offered across our T25, T75, T175, T225 and T500 flasks, enabling consistency and confidence when scaling up

Cell adhesion and growth on coated or modified glass or plastic surfaces

Growth substrates affect the adhesion, growth, morphology and differentiation of various cell types. However, the response to a given surface is cell type specific. Selection of a growth surface for cell culture should be based on cell culture performance and on application. In this technical bulletin, the growth of various cell types on plastic, soda lime glass and borosilicate coverglass was examined with surfaces that were either unmodified, coated with polylysine, or stably surface modified with non-biological reagents or electrical discharge.
