The fully scalable BioLector® manages not only to run 48 cultivations in parallel, but also to perform real time online monitoring of the most common parameters (biomass, pH, DO and GFP). Furthermore, the system controls the temperature inside the cultivation chamber, the shaking speed as well as humidity. It operates with non-invasive, optical sensors and is due to the continuous and rigorous shaking ideally suited for aerobic and anaerobic cultures. In case that there is a high or very low oxygen level required, a CO2 enriched aeration, anaerobic conditions, or the possibility for measuring Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET), the system can be easily upgraded with additional modules.

The Biolector® Pro version extends the proven scalable BioLector® technology with an innovative microfluidic chip for extremely exact and slow dosing down to 50 nL. More information

Pipetting volume range: 10 – 900 μL
Accuracy: ± 2%

This fully automated system combines a BioLector® with the precise and accurate liquid handling of a pipetting robot. The RoboLector® autonomously prepares media compositions from a full factorial design of experiments (DoE) and allows to add inducers and feed solutions during fermentation according to a pre-defined schedule or triggered by online process signals.

The RoboLector® L comes with a two-needle liquid-handling robot and 16 different deck positions on the worktable, whereas the more sophisticated RoboLector® XL provides 8-needles and 20 different deck positions. More information

Sterilization: Autoclavable
Vessel: Borosilicate glass jacketed vessel
Use: Bacterial/Cell Culture

The Solaris ELARA photobioreactors are available stirred and flat with turbidostat mode via cell density or radiation sensor. ELARA is ideal for phototrophic organisms such as moss, microalgae, bacteria and plant cells under optimum conditions. The light intensity is dimmable from 0-100% up to 3000 μmol(photon)/m2. The control panel can be checked remotely on your mobile device.

ELARA FLAT is a flat photobioreactor with a volume of 1.60 liters. Its main advantages are the asymmetric shape to prevent foam formation, the gas mixing through TMFC and solenoid valves, as well as more homogeneous light distribution. Moreover, all parts which are in contact with the culture are made of borosilicate glass or super duplex SAF 2507 which gives the reactor high resistance to salty water. More information
