TideXcell™ Harvesting System

The Gentle Giant's Harvester Partner
The TideXcell™ Harvesting System (TXLHS) is specially designed for TideXcell™ high-density cell culture system for cell recovery from the matrix vessel (2 L, 20 L, 100 L volume). The TXLHS is a powerful tool to harvest and transfer viable cells from large scale TideXcell™ system in a closed and automated system; eliminating the risk of contamination. It can also be applied to harvest cell mass for biological production and any related applications. With the use of TXLHS, up to 1011 cells can be harvested within one (1) to three (3) hours operation.

TideXcell™ Harvesting System

Tide Motion in TideXcell™ Harvesting System


  • Whole harvesting run can be setup from washing to cell harvesting in a closed, automated manner.
  • Suitable for cell harvest from TideXcell™ 2L matrix vessels to 20L matrix vessels.
  • Support the cell seed source for TideXcell™-010 up to TideXcell™-100 systems.
  • Harvest viable animal cells within 1 to 3 hours (harvest time depends on harvest cycles).
  • Up to 1011 cells with viability above 95% could be recovered from one THS unit
Note: Cell harvest efficiency depends on the cell line used.


  • Automated cell harvesting of adherent cell culture including but not limited to: Insect Cells, Mammalian Cells, Stem Cells
  • Biomass expansion for seed train from 2D to 3D
  • Autologous and allogeneic cell therapy
  • Intracellular viruses



  1. Installation
    Disconnect the TideXcell™ matrix vessel with the mixer. Mount and fix the TideXcell™ matrix vessel in the THS and connect the vessel with tubing manifolds that provide the sources. The six sources connect with the matrix vessel through 6 peristaltic pumps.
    Note: Connection of tubings should be done inside a biological safety cabinet
  2. Rinse
    Rinse the matrixes with PBS or equivalent solution to remove serum that could inhibit the enzymatic activity in the following step.
  3. Enzymatic Digestion
    Pump in and out chosen dissociation enzyme or equivalent solution to digest cells from the matrix. Incubate matrix vessel after pumping of enzyme.
    *Incubation time might be longer or shorter depends on the condition and needs to be determined beforehand
    Note: Incubation time might be longer or shorter depending on the cell culture requirements. This needs to be determined beforehand.
  4. Inhibitor
    Genlty pump in and out enzyme inhibitor to stop the enzymatic reaction.
  5. Detach
    Automatically shake the matrix vessel. Parameters such as time and force for detachment are inputted in the system.
  6. Harvesting
    Pump in culture media, shaking and rolling the matrix vessel to let cells fall off from the matrix.
    Pump out the media to harvest tank, this media includes suspended cells.
  7. Repeat No.5 - 6
    Repeat 5 times in average
