Thomson Rapid Clear Cap

The Thomson Optimum Growth™ family of products is expanding into downstream processing with a revolutionary new technology – Rapid Clear Cap – that allows high speed clarification of cellular material.

The filters work by simply switching the vented Optimum Growth Cap to the Rapid Clear Cap. The only equipment required is a peristaltic pump. In initial testing the units can filter up to 2.5L-3L of high density culture, 6×10^6 -20×10^6 @ >70% viability, in approximately 18 minutes. This technique will transform the time consuming and laborious task of harvesting cells to a rapid walk away procedure.

Key Benefits

  • Save time, clarify 3L of cell culture in less than 35 minutes – with no centrifugation required*!
  • Reduce consumables used by up to 90%
  • Walk away convenience and safety – minimise endotoxin exposure

Key Features

  • 0.2μm filter, eliminates multiple filtration steps and in some cases centrifugation*
  • Significant time savings versus traditional spin down technique
  • Cell clarification of low or high density cultures of CHO stable, CHO transient, HEK293, hybridoma, and other mammalian cell lines
  • Eliminates transfer steps: The Rapid Clear® Cap screws directly onto the Optimum Growth™ Flask
  • Secondary cap attaches to a new Optimum Growth™ Flask or to a storage container with a Luer lock
