MINIFOR fermentor and bioreactor was developed with innovations breaking down the stereotypes based on the personal experiences in the laboratory. The innovations introduced are done periodically with reference to the difficulties faced while working with the traditional fermentor and bioreactor in the laboratory.
Smallest fermentor-bioreactor footprint with control unitComparable to the size of A4 sheet for all working volumes (35 ml to 6 L)Extremely compact than any other system in the marketWeight of MINIFOR fermentor – bioreactor unit: only 7.5 kgPerfectly accessible from all sides The footprint of the MINIFOR fermentor-bioreactor system is similar to an A4 sheet […]
Covers whole range of laboratory working volume from 35 ml to 6 LInterchange vessel working volume with the same control unit at low costAvailable vessel volume range: 0.3 L, 0.4 L, 1 L, 3 L & 7 LReplaced the complex head-plates with simple threaded glass vesselsAccessing the ports as easy as screwing a cap on […]
MINIFOR control unit equipped with a high precision thermal massflow meter (0 – 5000 ml/min)Offers high quality regulation of dissolved oxygen (DO) by air flow rate variation in the fermentor – bioreactorGas flow measurement is independent of pressure and temperaturePrecise and reproducible air flow rate with a proprietary proportional needle valveBuild up the gas station […]
Vibromixer for up and down agitation in the fermentor and bioreactor (0 – 50 W)No vortex formation and therefore, no baffles requiredNo rotary mechanical seals resulting in achievement of easy sterile conditionsEfficient mixing in horizontal and vertical direction with “FiSH-TAIL” discsShear stress free agitationOptimal oxygenation and gas transfer (no air flooding) in the mediumSimple installation, […]
No need of electrical heating blankets, heating coils, jacketed vessels and thermal circulating bathsMicroprocessor controlled infrared radiation heater conveniently placed beneath the fermentation vessel regulates the temperatureExtremely precise temperature control of ± 0.1°C is achievedIR heater with high heat transfer and low heat capacitySoft heating without hot spots at any medium volume, not even at […]
Highly reliable pumps with reproducible flow rates for bioprocessing techniques Unique tubing compression technique for long tubing life and long term stability of flow rates even with low cost tubing Flow rates remain constant for several weeks without the risk of tubing rupture in long term experiments like continuous cultures, chemostat, perfusion Variable speed pump […]
Self-cleaning micro-sparger of MINIFOR which due to its elasticity releases any deposit formed on the sparger orifice and guarantees gas inflow at all times without interruption.
LAMBDA eliminated critical points to make sterility maintenance easy for long continuous runs Complete physical closure of the vessels obtained with silicone sterility membrane, permanent multipoint sealing, double seal conical PEEK connectors and septum Sterility is equivalent to magnetic coupling but is considerably less complex and much less expensive O-rings were replaced by large silicone […]
