A customer at a large pharmaceutical company took the above photos of chromatography resin at 100x under microscope. To suspend the resin in a 50ml tube with a standard magnetic stir bar, it was necessary to stir at 700rpms on a stir plate. You can see that the resin bead morphology is degraded at 15min and pulverized at 1.5hrs. The bottom 4 photos illustrate the morphology over time using the SpinVessel® tubes. You can see that after 3 hours, the integrity of the resin is maintained. The SpinVessel® offers homogenous mixing while maintaining the integrity of your particulates such as resin, agarose beads, cells, or any other particulate.
