I'm wanting to grow insect cells in 24 well deep well blocks and was wondering what kind of seals people use? How do you get the right kind of aeration without the small culture evaporating?
Thanks for the help.
we use for bacterial expression air pore tape sheets from Qiagen, aeration is very good, but I don't know if they are sterile enough for insect cell culture.
We are also currently testing covers provided by Applikon (you need a holder to fix them on the plate) that promise equally good aeration over all wells of the plate. Applicon is also providing a divice to monitor O2 supply in 24 well plates.
I'll try our usual ones but I'd like to know how the Applikon experiments go.
Hope all is well.
We routinely use this seal (http://divbio.com/sealingfilmsformicroplatesbreathe-easier.aspx) for our 24 deep well blocks for baculo. No problems with it.
Our normal E. coli seals seem to be working fine.
Thanks for the advice
