Corning Introduces Next-Generation Space-Saving Flask


Low-Profile Flask Features Corning® CellBIND® Surface, Optimizes Storage and Incubator Space and Enables Increased Lab Efficiency.
Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW), a global supplier of scientific laboratory and drug discovery products for more than 90 years, today announced the low-profile flask featuring Corning’s premier CellBIND® surface. This revolutionary new product utilizes a similar footprint as the current T-75 flask but creates 100 cm2 of surface area, enabling customers to realize a 50 percent space savings when using low-profile flasks compared to standard T75 flasks (three low profile flasks -300cm2 versus four standard T75 flasks -300cm2).

The low-profile flask, accessible with a 10-milliliter pipette and small scrapers, also provides customers with one-half turn cap closure for improved lab efficiency and features sterile venting, which allows for CO2 exchange with the cap securely fastened. Additionally, the flask is able to stand on either its end or sides, helping customers to work more easily with multiple flasks at one time.

“Conducting research with the typical flasks available can be both a time consuming and laborious undertaking,” said Joseph Donze, business manager, DDP and Cells, Corning Life Sciences. “Leveraging input from our global customer base, we have developed a unique flask that provides all the convenience and safety requirements they demanded to help them work more efficiently in today’s rigorous laboratory environment. We are very pleased with the positive feedback we have received to date and are confident researchers around the world will continue to quickly incorporate this new technology into their everyday practices.”
