Submerged fungal cultures
Assure optimal cultivation conditions of filamentous fungi (e.g.: Penicillium chrysogenum, Cephalosporium acremonium, Aspergillus niger, Penicillium sp., Fusarium sp., Phycomyces blakesleanus, Caldariomyces fumago, Botrytis, ...) in submerged cultures for germination of fungal spores, mycelial growth (hyphae extension), pellet formation and sporulation by the help of LAMBDA MINIFOR bench-top bioreactors!
Which parameters for submerged fungal cultures are controlled?
The main parameters for submerged fungal cultures controlled by the bench-top bioreactors are temperature, culture-adapted agitation, pH and aeration (sparging/surface aeration) / dissolved oxygen (DO, pO2).
Optional cultivation accessories:
Helpful optional cultivation accessories for filamentous fungi in submerged cultures in bench-top bioreactors are O2 enrichment, light control, adapted stirring discs (gentle silicone, metal or perforated stirring discs), pCO2, feed & harvest pumps with weighing module for chemostat cultures (chemostat).
