5 L Bioreactor for Cell Cultivations

5 L Bioreactor for Cell Cultivations

Novel magnetically coupled drive: eliminates the risk of contamination within the vessel since there is no mechanical seal.
Mixing and aeration: tailored for cell cultivation (plant and mammalian cells).
Autoclavable sampling port: The sterilisable port facilitates operational activities.
Uniform lid construction: No welded components within the lid for easy maintenance and sterility.
Flexible working volume: 5 L bioreactor with working volume up to 4.5 L.


Our innovative fully automated and autoclavable laboratory bioreactor is designed for R&D and process development. It has a robust design, yet it is compact and ergonomic. The vessel is mounted between a jacketed base and a non-welded lid.

The uniform lid features all the necessary ports and sensors that might be required for cell cultivation processes.

There is a sterilisable sampling port conveniently located in the base of the vessel to facilitate operational activities during a process.

The magnetically coupled drive which can reach up to 1500 rpm ensures excellent sterility within the vessel.


The bioprocess controller ensures:

1) Temperature regulation by supplying a control signal either to the heating element or the electro-magnetic cooling water valve of the thermostat. Thermoregulation is carried out by circulation of thermostated water through the bioreactor’s jacket, which is located in the bottom lid of the vessel;

2) pH control by supplying base or acid solutions to the bioreactor medium using the bioprocess controller’s peristaltic pumps;

3) pO2 control by automatic adjustments of the stirrer’s rotational speed. The actual pO2 value is monitored using a pO2 electrode;

4) Foam control by supplying an antifoam agent to the bioreactor’s medium using the bioprocess controller’s peristaltic pumps. The foam level is monitored using a conductivity sensor;

5) Feeding of a substrate by using the bioprocess controller’s peristaltic pump and the respective feeding rate/volume is controlled by the feeding profile, which is set in the bioprocess


6) Level control by using the bioprocess controller’s peristaltic pump. The medium level is monitored using a conductivity sensor;

7) Mixing by using a magnetic drive, the agitator is driven by a motor which is mounted on the top lid of the bioreactor.
