Corning® disposable Erlenmeyer flasks are sterile, ready to use, and ideal for shaker culture applications and storage. All of our disposable Erlenmeyer flasks feature molded in graduations for accuracy, are certified nonpyrogenic, are individually packaged, and come with a vent cap option for continuous gas exchange while maintaining sterility and preventing leakage.

The showpiece of the Erlenmeyer family is the 5L Erlenmeyer, a vessel designed to aid in the scale-up suspension culture with space efficiency in mind. The 5L Erlenmeyer occupies the same footprint as the 3L Erlenmeyer while offering an additional 2.5L of working volume.

New! Corning® PETG Erlenmeyer Flasks

Corning 2L, 3L, and 5L Erlenmeyer flasks are now available in PETG resin, allowing you to choose the material that works best for your cell lines.

Scaling up with Erlenmeyer Shake Flasks

Because scaling from one vessel to the next can sometimes be complicated, we’ve shared one of the workflows successfully used by Corning scientists. With this as a starting point, you can grow more cells, from process development through manufacturing scale, doubting less along the way.

Safely Fill, Sample, and Empty with Aseptic Transfer Caps

To protect precious cultures against adventitious contamination during liquid transfer, Corning® offers aseptic transfer caps (ATCs) that fit all sizes of its disposable Erlenmeyer flasks. All ATCs have two ports with chemically resistant, heat sealable flexible tubing. The dip tube reaches to the bottom of the flask for complete transfer of liquids during manipulations. The transfer caps are available separately or pre-assembled on plain- or baffled-bottom flasks. All units arrive sterile, individually doubled-bagged, assembled, and ready-to-use. Customization is available.
