The Heart of Tide Motion Bioreactors
BioNOC™ II is a macroporous carrier that supports the growth of anchorage-dependent cells including animal, mammalian, and insect cells in either serum-containing or serum-free culture media. It is made of 100% pure polyester nonwoven fabric manufactured according to cGMP guidelines. The special geometric design and surface treatment on the carrier enhance fluid mixing, immobilization efficiency, protection from shear forces, and nutrient transfer during cell culture.
