POLYSTYRENE NANOFIBER PRODUCTS
Polystyrene nanofiber has enhanced attributes compared to polystyrene, due to its extremely high surface area.
Polystyrene nanofibers provide more adhesion as scaffold for cells and tissues at molecular level.
It is particularly suitable for stem cell and 3D cell/tissue researches.
The morphologic structure of polystyrene nanofiber offers perfect surfaces for adhesion as well as proliferation of cells.
Polystyrene nanofibers provide very stable environment for sensitive cell and tissue applications.
Polystyrene is a synthetic aromatic polymer. Polystyrene has been used as a surface material for tissue and cell adhesion since 1960's due to its clearity, flexibility and easily irradiated nature. Polystyrene, however, has not enough hydrophilicity for tissue and cell studies.
Polystyrene nanofibers are more hydrophilic than polystyrene. Therefore, tissues and cells exhibit more adhesion to polystyrene nanofibers compared to polystyrene, poly-L-lysine and collagen cell cultures.
Polysytrene nanofiber products are offered as Coverslip, Multiwell PLate, Cell Culture Dish options.
Polysytrene nanofiber coated coverslip products are optically transparent and contain 0.1-0.2 mg nanofiber/cm2 fixed on one side of a coverslip.
Polysytrene nanofiber products are UV-sterilised (vacuum packaged) or ethanol sterilized.
The product expiration date is 1 year after the production, unless the sterilized packaged is open.
The product can be stored at room temperature.
Directions for use
For UV-sterilized polystyrene nanofiber products:
1. Open the outer package.
2. Open the bag and the product is ready to use.
3. Use a tweezer to handle the coverslip products.
For ethanol-sterilized polystyrene nanofiber products:
1. Open the package full with ethanol.
2. Use a tweezer to handle the coverslip products.
3. Allow the products to dry for a while.
4. After the product becomes white, it is ready to use.
1. Polystyrene nanofibers are used for tissue or cell stabilization studies with higher efficiency.
2. Polystyrene nanofiber surfaces can be functionalized for specific applications.
Q. What are the differences between polystyrene nanofiber and polystyrene?
A. Polystyrene nanofiber is more hydrophilic than polystyrene, which is preferrable for tissue/cell adhesion.
