New Cell Culture Shelving and Incubation Product Range

May 01 2012

Caron Products & Services, Inc is proud to announce new Gelf™ cell culture shelving and incubation products. These products use a combination of thermal active gel insulation technology and the antimicrobial properties of copper to enhance everyday cell culture applications. Gelf products address two critical incubation needs: eliminating contamination and maintaining constant cell temperature in and out of the incubator.

Gelf includes the following products: Gelf™ Pod is designed to increase incubator temperature stability and as a portable ‘tray’ to facilitate laboratory transportation, such as to and from an incubator and BioSafety Cabinet; Gelf™ Pod Incubator is a temporary storage solution for high volume cell culture laboratories and facilities that are concerned for their extremely temperature sensitive cell cultures. This product fits easily inside a BSC and can be set up to provide CO2; Gelf™ Shelf is designed to fit into popular 6 cu. ft. to 6.5 cu. ft. benchtop incubators and is a stationary proactive solution that adds an extra layer of thermal and antimicrobial protection for cells inside of an incubator. Temperature recovery after a one-minute door opening is up to twice as fast and the natural antimicrobial capabilities of copper eliminate microbial contaminates at all times.

Each Gelf product contains phase change gel specially formulated to change from a solid to a liquid state, or ‘melt’ at 37°C. As heat is introduced to the gel, typically sitting inside an incubator, the gel actively stores heat. When introduced to lower temperatures, such as processing outside of the incubator or during incubator door openings, the gel resists changing back from a liquid to a solid state, thereby slowly releasing its stored heat.

In addition to phase change gel, all Gelf products are comprised of 100% pure antimicrobial copper. Copper is proven effective against contamination and the natural antimicrobial capabilities work to eliminate microbial contamination all the time.
