The Case for Jars in Tissue Processing
In tissue processing and transplantation, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine, there’s a growing demand for appropriate-quality containers that can be used from R&D all the way through to product commercialization.
Quite often, containers used during the R&D phase are made from laboratory-grade materials like polycarbonate, polystyrene, and polypropylene. These containers often lack a complete package of USP (United States Pharmacopeia) and extractables testing. And when pre-sterilized, they sometimes don’t have the appropriate sterility validation for commercial use.
An increasing number of companies are finding that their containers are reducing the viability of live tissues and cell cultures due to high extractable levels. As well – the containers themselves fail during transport due to a lack of shipping and container closure testing.
Jars are an ideal container type for tissue handling and storage because their wide-mouth openings allow for the easy transfer and removal of entire contents. In fact, molded jars are widely used for the secure collection, storage, archival, or disposition of a wide variety of materials – including tissues and other biological samples.
