Steam-in-place (SiP) bioreactors
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 main difference between these two lines is the aspect ratio of the bioreactors. The microbial system have an aspect ratio of 3.0 at total volume while the cell culture systems have an aspect ratio of 1.5 at total volume. Applications are pilot plant and small scale production for both mammalian cells and micro-organisms.
