Invitrogen: Jun 15, 2007

Invitrogen has released SynerGy Selector, a tool that offers users a way to select or design custom cell culture media bags filled with GIBCO media and reagents.  
According to the company, this tool reduces the time it takes to design and receive custom media-filled bags. Customers can visit Invitrogen’s website to choose media formulation, bag size, and chambers, fill volume, tubing, and configuring ports. The SynerGy Selector tool immediately displays the bag drawing online. Once the customer approves, Invitrogen then fills the custom request and ships the order with GIBCO media. 

Customers can also use the tool to order pre-filled universal bags in a variety of sizes and a range of formulations. The pre-filled GIBCO universal bags are stocked and ready to ship.
