Laboratory equipment maker Celartia Ltd. launched a new cell culture device in the U.S. and Canada.
The company said the device, called the PetakaG3, reduces cell culture contamination and is more portable than similar devices on the market, according to a statement from Celartia.
Celartia said the PetakaG3 is small enough to fit in a pocket, and doesn’t require freezing or dry ice to be shipped. The device’s design is based on a resealable access port that keeps the interior hermetically sealed.
In June, Celartia received a tax credit from the Ohio Department of Development to establish an office in the state. The tax credit was valued at $123,000 by ODOD. At the time, the Valencia, Spain-based company was reported to be considering two locations in the Columbus area.
