Sartorius Stedim Biotech ambr 250 Modular Bioreactor

Aug. 11, 2016

Sartorius Stedim Biotech introduced the ambr® 250 modular, a benchtop mini bioreactor system for parallel fermentation or cell culture. The system combines a single-use bioreactor vessel and expandable system design to offer advanced benchtop bioreactor technology for process development.

The ambr 250 modular system consists of a workstation with 2, 4, 6 or 8 single-use bioreactors, with a working volume range of 100 to 250 mL. The mini bioreactors contain impellers suitable for fermentation or cell culture and show excellent scale up to larger bioreactors. They are also fully integrated with liquid reservoirs and syringe pumps, allowing rapid experimental set up and turn around, thus significantly increasing lab efficiency.

Once installed, the bioreactor has all the required process services for parameter control, including pH, DO, temperature or agitation. Additionally, feeds can be delivered from the reagent reservoirs via the syringe pumps into the bioreactor. One control unit is capable of controlling up to eight bioreactor stations independently via an easy to use touch screen user interface.
