Glass Autoclavable Reactors Bioreactors

In the laboratory bioreactor and fermentor range Applikon is worldwide market leader because of its dependable and easy to use systems. The bioreactors and fermentors excel in quality and modularity. An Applikon laboratory system is easy to upgrade if a change in research activities occurs. Applikon offers glass autoclavable bioreactors for cell culture applications and glass autoclavable fermentors for microbial culture applications. The systems are built according to the specific demands of a process using an extensive array of standard components. Because of the modularity and flexibility, the user can always adapt the systems to changed process demands. This results in low initial investment and low running costs. The stirred tank reactor (STR) is the most widely used bioreactor type. Glass autoclavable bioreactors and fermentors are available in 1 - 2 - 3 - 5 - 7 - 15 and 20 liter total volume.
