The Applikon Bio Bench bioreactor range consists of four different Sterilizable-In-Place bioreactor systems with a total volume of 7 liter, 15 liter, 20 liter and 30 liter. Applications are in basic research and small scale production for both mammalian cells and micro-organisms. The Bio Bench range is a direct scale-up from the lab scale autoclavable bioreactors (the world standard in laboratory research). This eases scale-up and minimizes risks in process transfer to next volume level. The small footprint guarantees that the minimal amount of bench space is occupied by the system. All systems are fully documented for cGMP usage and are supplied with an extensive documentation package to support validation.
The standardized design of the systems offers the flexibility needed in R&D to adapt the system to the changing process demands. A wide range of standard modules is available to customize the systems to the specific demands of the customer. The modularity extends to the control tower that can be supplied with the systems. A wide range of add-on packs are available. These standard packs include pressure control, weight control, double gas inlet lines, CIP modules biomass sensors, perfusion systems and many more.
Applikon offers a choice of ez-Control and i-Control process control systems. Both systems offer automated Sterilization procedures. The i-Control adds automated Clean-In-Place procedures to the Bio Bench systems. The Bio Bench bioreactors can also be used with control systems that are already in place at the customers site. The BioXpert software is used for data collection, data visualization and advanced supervisory control actions.Request for More information
