SixFors 6x500 ml research console / Fermentor

    Equipment/facility: Equipment

      Description

      Multi-fermentor system for up to six 500 ml vessels in batch and continuous operation

      Uses
      Fermentation

      Specifications
      Each vessel can be controlled independently, with temperature equilibration and alteration, three peristaltic pumps to control pH and foam, and timed and program-controlled substrate dosing.
      The control unit can also measure and control agitation, dissolved oxygen (DO), the introduction of oxygen and nitrogen, etc.
      Top plate ports allow for the insertion of pH and DO probes and injection syringes as well as the removal of samples.
      Allows rapid evaluation of strains and different media in different operating conditions and can perform other screening tasks such as toxicity testing.

      Details
      Statistical validity is provided with this system and the IRIS software supplies the necessary graphing and analysis tools for comparisons.
      The small vessel size is ideal for continuous culture applications or perfusion, especially when expensive media are to be used.
