New Brunswick CelliGen® BLU cabinet / 50 L CelliGen® BLU vessel

Eppendorf is proud to announce the release of the next generation New Brunswick CelliGen® BLU cabinet and the much anticipated 50 L CelliGen® BLU single-use vessel. The New Brunswick CelliGen® BLU system combines the trusted performance of traditional bioprocess control with all the benefits of single-use technology.

Featuring interchangeable pitched-blade, single-use vessels in 5, 14, and 50 L capacities, along with the first single-use vessel to feature New Brunswick’s proprietary packed-bed impeller, the CelliGen® BLU portfolio boasts the widest range of rigid-walled, stirred-tank, single-use vessels on the market today. The next generation cabinet has taken the term flexibility to new heights. Interchangeable gas flow options, traditional and optical pH probe technology, and an integrated scale interface are just a few of the features that allow the New Brunswick CelliGen® BLU to meet today’s vast range of process needs, making it the ideal choice for high density cell culture process from research through production.

Spacious UV Viewing Cabinet for Gel Analysis
The Spectroline® CL-150 Series UV workstations enable lab technicians to view, analyze, and photograph fluorescent samples with both epi-illumination and trans-illumination light sources. A removable bottom panel allows either unit to be placed directly over the transilluminator. Meanwhile, researchers can either utilize the safety viewing eyepiece or substitute a "snap-on" camera adapter for photography.

The spacious CL-150 cabinet is able to accommodate large electrophoresis gels and up to four 8 x 8 in (20 x 20 cm) TLC plates. The 25-watt white light bulb in the cabinet provides visible illumination for easy sample preparation. However, different models of Spectroline X- and XX-series 15-watt UV lamps, sold separately, can be used interchangeably.
