The CORe™ Culture Optimization Reactor is a stand-alone and cost effective bioreactor system that is compact and flexible in design. The convenient on-board controls and touch screen display eliminates the need for a bulky external controller thus saving valuable bench space and facilitating ease of portability. The unit can be operated on a bench, in a laminar flow hood or even on a desk. Data is easily exported via an ethernet connection into common analysis programs. The addition of multiplexing capabilities will be forthcoming.
The pre-sterilized single use vessel offers a working capacity of 35-100ml which allows significant savings in media costs without compromising performance. Sensors for temperature, pH and DO are all in wall, minimizing contamination risks and interference from the inserts. The only product contact surface is the impeller and shaft which also contains the sparger allowing for gas additions including O2, CO2, N2 and air. Various impeller and sparger designs may be custom ordered to fit user requirements.
The CORe™ Mini Bioreactor includes four pumps with an option of up to eight pumps for flexible media handling. Sampling can be performed from both top and bottom ports which facilitate access to and from the vessel. They also provide a convenient connection to a cell concentration device. It can be configured for batch, fed batch or continuous operation.
