Automated harvesting of cells eliminates laborious steps when manually harvesting cells from a system. Different Tide Motion bioreactors are each equipped with its own harvesting system. The harvesting process uses the same conventional method of harvesting adherent cells.
CelShaker™ has rotary arms that can perform 15° tilted shaking and hold up to 4 CelCradle™ bottles in inverted position. The shaker can simulate the shaking action of the human wrist efficiently knocking out cells from being bound to the macroporous carriers. This allows for semi-automated harvesting from CelCradle™ cultures (CelCradle™ and CelCradle™ X systems), replacing the tedious manual tapping of the bottles.
