Cradle for your Adherent Cells

CelCradle is a bench-top scale bioreactor system that can support high cell density culture. It is a single-use, cost effective packed-bed bioreactor system for adherent scale-up from laboratory scale to production scale. The system fits inside a 6ft3 CO2 incubator (for batch culture) or 8.5ft3 CO2 incubator (for perfusion culture)

Tide Motion in CelCradle™


  • Fully Stainless Steel - SS 316 L
  • Pre-sterilized, ready-to-use, disposable
  • Extremely low shear stress, foam-free, O2 limitation
  • Large surface area: one CelCradle™ bottle has a specific surface area of up to 15,000 cm2, comparable to 18 - 20 roller bottles
  • Compact design
  • Controlled by Esco Sentinel Gold
  • Capacity to produce hundreds of milligrams to several grams of secreted proteins or monoclonal antibodies per month in four bottles
  • Few parameters for easy optimization
  • Choice of batch, fed-batch, or perfusion culture modes
  • Scalability by directly multiplying number of bottles used
  • Compatible with most serum-free media
  • Specially treated macroporous carriers surface to grow most anchorage-dependent cells and allow easy harvest of whole cells, cell components or secreted proteins


  • Mammalian and insect cell culture
  • Monoclonal antibody production
  • Drug discovery
  • Gene and cell therapy
  • Protein and virus production
  • Proteome research
  • Pharmacokinetics study
