Cell culture flasks are specialized laboratory containers used for growing and maintaining cells in a controlled environment outside of their natural environment. They are typically made of glass or plastic and come in various sizes and shapes, including round, rectangular, and roller bottles.
The flasks are designed to provide a sterile environment to support cell growth and multiplication, and they contain a nutrient-rich culture medium that provides the necessary nutrients, growth factors, and hormones required for cell growth. The flasks are typically sealed with a cap or lid to prevent contamination and maintain the proper gas exchange necessary for cell survival.
Cell culture flasks are used in a wide range of biological research applications, including drug discovery, tissue engineering, and stem cell research. They are also commonly used in medical and clinical settings for producing vaccines, antibodies, and other biological products
