CSL Behring Fermentation Facility

SixFors 6x500 ml Research Console

Multi-fermentor system for up to six 500-ml vessels in batch and continuous operation

Uses

  • Fermentation

Specifications

  • Each vessel can be controlled independently, with temperature equilibration and alteration, three peristaltic pumps to control pH and foam, and timed and program-controlled substrate dosing.
  • The control unit also can measure and control agitation, dissolved oxygen (DO), the introduction of oxygen and nitrogen, etc.
  • Top plate ports allow for the insertion of pH and DO probes and injection syringes as well as the removal of samples.
  • Allows for rapid evaluation of strains and various media in different operating conditions and can perform other screening tasks such as toxicity testing.

Details

  • Statistical validity is provided with this system, and the IRIS software supplies the necessary graphing and analysis tools for comparisons.
  • The small vessel size is ideal for continuous culture applications or perfusion, especially when expensive media are to be used.
