Plates are made from Nunclon for exceptional optical clarity and have special surface treatment ensuring optimal cell attachment and growth. Plates fit easily into the range of ancillary equipment already available (e.g. shakers, automatic pipette dilution machines) The flat bottom 96 well plate has raised wells ensuring uniform well bases and excellent optical quality. The design also permits individual numbering of the wells under the microscope. On the round bottom 96 well plate, each well has a raised rim.
Developed especially for ELISA and IRMA analyses. Manufactured from polystyrene with a high binding capacity (400ng immunoglobulins per cm 2). A certificate which guarantees that the CV in ELISA and IRMA analyses is less than 5 percent and that all results are within 10 percent from mean is provided. The internal base of tube has 6 fins. This unique design increases the plastic surface by 50-100%, depending on the amount of liquid used. It is therefore possible to absorb proportionally more on the increased surface and thereby improve the sensitivity of the analysis.
Photo of Nunc-Immuno Tubes
Nunc-Immuno Tubes are used for IRMA, ELISA and ILMA techniques. Tubes are made of polystyrene or polyethylene with modified surfaces: MaxiSorp surface has excellent affinity to immunoglobulins and similar proteins. PolySorp surface is recommended for the absorption of less polar molecules, e.g. certain viral antigens and lipids. This surface may reduce high background readings associated with viral and cellular lysates. MiniSorp tubes are molded from a special formulation of polyethylene. The tubes exhibit very low affinity for proteins.

Tightness in the cap and excellent temperature resistance make CryoTubes especially suited for storing samples at very low temperatures and, in general, where a high security for tightness is required. Manufactured from specially selected polypropylene, which combines a high degree of transparency with the ability to withstand low temperatures. CryoTubes, with inside treads, have a silicone gasket ensuring a tight seal. Recommended working volume and writing area are printed on the tubes.

Petri dishes available in a variety of styles for laboratory use or for use with automatic filling equipment. These products are molded from biomedical grade polystyrene with emphasis on optical clarity. Most dishes are vented to permit gas exchange during incubation. Bottom flatness is carefully controlled to ensure even distribution of media and organisms. Screening is easier and more definitive because the dishes do not have breathing vents. The medium will not dry out as quickly during extended culture.
Photo of Nunclon Triple Flask
The Nunclon D TripleFlask is designed with three parallel growth surfaces which provide a total culture area of 500cm2 within the same external dimensions of a standard 175cm2 flask. The Triple Flask's compact design saves incubator space, yet triples cell culture surface area. The three parallel growth surfaces promote conventional, flat, monolayer culturing. Cell lines do not require recharacterization therefore, scale up is easy and consistent. Triple Flask is emptied the same as conventional flasks.
Photo of Nunc Tissue Culture Coverslips
Nunc manufactures plastic coverslips in several different styles. Plastic coverslips are treated to obtain a surface for good cell attachment and growth. These products have an approximate thickness of 1.0mm and are radiation sterilized. Thermonox coverslips are tissue culture treated on one side to provide an excellent culturing environment. The Termanox plastic is highly resistant to solvents including those commonly used for electron microscopy. Thermanox has a very low dissolved O2 content. Coverslip cuts easily with a scalpel or microtome without shattering.

Nunc Tissue Culture Flasks feature the Nunclon D surface which provides excellent cell attachment and growth. Nunc offers a choice of cap styles on larger flasks. 80cm 2 and 175cm 2 flasks are available with filter caps, polyethylene plug seal screw-caps and phenolic caps. The polyethylene caps for the 80cm 2 and 175cm 2 flasks have two modes of closure. In the vent position air exchanges takes place through a labyrinth which minimizes risk of contamination. In closed position the plug-seal prevents any air or liquid from escaping.
Photo of Nunclon SoLo Flask
The unique, low-profile design of the Nunclon D SoLo Flask increases the amount of usable growth surface, while optimizing incubator and storage space. The SoLo flask offers an expanded 185cm 2 culture area within the same external dimensions as a 150cm 2 flask. As a result, four SoLo flasks can be stacked in the same space as three conventional flasks. The large bore, angled neck facilitates pipette and cell scraper access to the 185cm 2 growth surface. The special, flat bottom, tapered shoulder area provides stability to prevent media from splashing into the flask neck during handling.
Photo of Nunc Filter Cap Flasks
The Filter Cap on Nunc Flasks effectively excludes micro-organisms larger than 0.22m while allowing optimal gas exchange. Maximum protection against contamination is provided by a unique hydrophobic filter. Bacterial and fungal spores can neither pass through nor grow through the matrix and contaminate the culture. The hydrophobic filter won't clog in a humid atmosphere, or if it accidentally comes in contact with the medium. The filter surface area in each size cap is proportional to the flask volume, assuring adequate gas exchange.
