The TunairTM Shake Flask Systems are a unique and patented flask and closure system, designed for microbiology and biotechnology applications. This system provides optimum growth conditions for aerobic microorganisms, mammalian cells, and plant cells. They also provide better culture growth and productivity than standard Erlenmeyer flasks.
The TunairTM's high oxygen absorption rate is due to the unique baffling and turbo-vane closure design. It's designed to increase the availability of dissolved oxygen as well as improve cell yields.
There are three (3) flask designs available depending on your application:
No-Baffle (0 Baffles): Normal Throw
Half-Baffle (2 Baffles): Vortex Motion
Full-Baffle (6 Baffles): Propeller Motion
300 ml flasks for front-line culture development studies and 2.5L flask for production studies, equipped with a handle.
All TunairTM flasks and caps are constructed of chemical resistant polypropylene.
All TunairTM flasks, caps, and linings can be sterilized by autoclaving.
Flasks have wide-mouth opening allowing easy access for media preparation, harvest and cleanup.
Barrel-shaped design provides wide vortex and more operational capacity than conventional Erlenmeyer flasks
The slip on cap and filter linings protect the flask neck from airborne particles and eliminates the need for flaming.
Flasks can be cleaned by soaking in water with a light detergent (e.g. Joy) solution to loosen dirt and contaminants, air dry.
1" Throws: 150-200rpm
2" Throws: 300-400rpm or possibly higher
