Velocity Sedimentation Cell Separator for rapid, easy cell separation
Developed by Johns Scientific in co-operation with THE ONTARIO CANCER INSTITUTE, Toronto, Canada and exclusively manufactured and sold by ProScience Glass Shop Division.
The ‘STA-PUT’ apparatus, designed by Doctors R.G. Miller and R.A. Phillips of the Ontario Cancer Institute in Toronto, permits rapid, easy separation of suspensions of living cells on the basis of differences in cell sedimentation rate in the earth’s gravitational field. Under the conditions of separation, cells sediment at a rate determined primarily by size, although density also makes a minor contribution. Separation on the basis of size often yields a separation on the basis of function so that separations of functionally different cells can often be achieved.
