The Thermo Scientific Harvestainer Microcarrier Separation System is the ideal solution for the separation of microcarrier beads during adherent cell culture production. The Harvestainer system is a closed, single-use system that helps to increase product yields versus traditional methods, while reducing clean-in-place and steam-in-place requirements and water for injection usage. It eliminates equipment maintenance and reduces process validations, cycle times, and manual final decanting processes.
For smaller-scale or larger-scale applications, the Harvestainer system is ideal for in-line microcarrier separation. The 3 L and 12 L Harvestainer systems consist of a pre-assembled bioprocess container (BPC) and tray in a single-use unit, where the tray acts as the secondary containment device. The 25 L and 50 L Harvestainer systems consist of a 3D BPC with a drum as the secondary containment device. The BPC features a dip tube with dipwell design for better drainage and minimal manipulation.
