cell culture flasks are widely used in life science research and the pharmaceutical field. Here are some of the main application areas of cell culture flasks :

Cell Biology Research: These consumables are essential tools for in vitro cell culture and are widely used in cell biology research for studies on cell proliferation, differentiation, cell cycle, apoptosis, and other aspects.

Drug Screening and Efficacy Evaluation: cell culture flasks are commonly used for drug screening and efficacy evaluation. During the drug development process, co-culturing drugs with cells allows the assessment of their effects on cell growth, metabolism, toxicity, etc., thus screening potential candidate drugs.

Vaccine Development: cell culture flasks play a crucial role in vaccine development. The production of vaccines often involves preparing antigens through cell culture, such as expressing and secreting antigens in cell culture flasks, followed by collection and purification to prepare vaccines.

Biopharmaceuticals: They are widely used in biopharmaceutical processes. Cells can express and secrete recombinant proteins, such as antibodies, growth factors, etc. These recombinant proteins are typically produced on a large scale through cell culture for drug preparation.

Cell Engineering: Cell engineering involves the modification and optimization of cells using genetic engineering and cell culture techniques to produce specific biological products such as enzymes, hormones, cytokines, etc.

Cell Research Teaching: cell culture flasks are also widely used in teaching experiments for cell research. Students can conduct cell culture experiments using these consumables to understand cell growth, cellular responses, cell manipulation techniques, and other related knowledge.

In summary, cell culture flasks play important roles in cell biology, drug development, vaccine preparation, biopharmaceuticals, cell engineering, and other fields. Their controllable culture environment and convenient operational characteristics make them indispensable tools in research and application.

The FAI climbed 5.9 percent year-on-year in the first 11 months of 2018, quickening from the 5.7-percent growth in Jan-Oct, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Friday in an online statement.

The key indicator of investment, dubbed a major growth driver, hit the bottom in August and has since started to rebound steadily.

In the face of emerging economic challenges home and abroad, China has stepped up efforts to stabilize investment, in particular rolling out measures to motivate private investors and channel funds into infrastructure.

Friday's data showed private investment, accounting for more than 60 percent of the total FAI, expanded by a brisk 8.7 percent.

NBS spokesperson Mao Shengyong said funds into weak economic links registered rapid increases as investment in environmental protection and agriculture jumped 42 percent and 12.5 percent respectively, much faster than the average.

In breakdown, investment in high-tech and equipment manufacturing remained vigorous with 16.1-percent and 11.6-percent increases respectively in the first 11 months. Infrastructure investment gained 3.7 percent, staying flat. Investment in property development rose 9.7 percent, also unchanged.
