Microbial Bioreactors and Fermenters
The Biostat STR® Microbial, a single-use (SU) fermenter engineered for microbial applications, combines the advantages of SU with the performance of stainless-steel. It allows fast batch-to-batch turnover for high productivity and has a compact footprint. The Biobrain® automation platform supports stand-alone GMP tools and precise control. With working volumes up to 40 L, the Biostat STR® Microbial is ideal for developing and manufacturing high value products including pDNA, fAbs, recombinant proteins and vaccines.
Achieve high growth rates, an OD600 of >300, a kLa of 675 1/h, stirring speeds at 500 rpm, efficient cooling, and high gas flow at (1.5vvm).
Accelerate batch-to-batch turnover with a single-use design and ready-to-use Flexsafe STR® bags that negate extensive cleaning protocols.
Gain advanced process automation and control of cultivation parameters with a proven GMP-ready system that integrates with your DCS.
Save space with a versatile system that can acaccommodate either cell culture or microbial bag holders.
Engineered for Fermentation Processes
Engineered for Robustness and Speed
Designed for robust and easy process transfer and scaling of challenging microbial applications. Proven excellent performance KPIs of OD600 300, kLa1 of 675 1/h, and a specific growth rate of 0.15ℎ^ (−1) in E. coli cultivations.
- Develop your E. coli processes within shorter timelines
- Establish small-scale CM with increasing productivity
- Simple to install and flexible
- Ease processing through GMP-ready automation
Engineered for Seamless Process Transfer
Easy, unrestricted conversion from established stainless steel processes. Coupled with single-use Flexsafe® STR bags, allows easier waste disposal and reduction of contamination and operator risk.
- Faster setup through Biobrain® GMP stand-alone capability
- Run more projects per time through higher batch-to-batch turnover
- Lower footprint, lesser installation time, and pipping
