SeptaVent™ Vented Centrifuge Tubes

Various containers commonly used in laboratory fluid handling systems may be enhanced by integrating a septum and filter for venting into their cap.  The septum facilitates the use of various syringes, pipettes or cannula for sterile extractions and additions.  This unique approach which utilizes a non-slitted or pre-slitted septum allows for cost effective robotic automation.  It works in conjunction with all custom and standard robotic liquid handling systems.  SeptaVent™ centrifuge tubes can be added to most readily available containers commonly found in the lab.

Single-Use, Vented Centrifuge Tubes with Septums for Fluid Handling.

SeptaVent™ vented centrifuge tubes are a novel integration of two common technologies into a single device. The cap septum device allows for easy access to your test fluids. When combined with membrane venting on a disposable container, SeptaVent™ fluid handling systems allows for easy access and small volume fluid handling, while maintaining a sterile and uncompromised environment essential for automated cell culture.

Each SeptaVent™ fluid handling systems cap has a central pre-slit septum which allows for easy access into the centrifuge tube.  In addition, the integrated vent filter allows for gas-exchange that provides a suitable environment for cell growth. Furthermore, the SeptaVent™ fluid handling system is also known as a “thin-tube” device. The combination of these features into one makes the SeptaVent™ with vented centrifuge tubes an ideal single-use bioreactor for automation of cell culture using standard high throughput equipment.

SeptaVent™ Vented Centrifuge Tube Usage Procedure & Packaging

It is recommended that the user swab the surface of the septum with IPA and use a pipette, cannula or syringe to access the container.  It is also recommended that a laminar flow HEPA hood environment be used while accessing the septum.
 
SeptaVent™ vented centrifuge tubes should be used with a custom rack and automated liquid handling platform, or with a robot to cost effectively eliminate the screwing and unscrewing of caps. This also reduces contamination risk and unnecessary labor costs from OSHA claims due to to RMS (repetitive motion syndrome).
 
SeptaVent™ centrifuge tubes are packaged individually or in bulk, either irradiated or non-irradiated.
