Your Complete Bioreactor Platform from Cell Line Development to Commercial Manufacturing


Simplify Your Scale-up and Scale-down, Minimize the Risk of Process Transfers and Get the Best Solution for High Cell Density and Continuous Cultures

The Sartorius range of bioreactor platforms have been developed with similar standard geometries to maximise performance and simplify transition between scales. The dedicated MFCS SCADA software ensures easy and reliable data management and control across all platforms. Integrated chemometrics simplify the application of design of experiments (DoE) and multivariate data analysis (MVDA) and enable implementation of Quality by Design (QbD) principles.


Make the Right Choices from the Start

More Predictive and Scalable Results for Cell Line and Media Development

ambr® 15 has been proven by industry leaders to provide better scalability than a shake flask. It has transformed cell line development in many leading biopharma companies worldwide by enabling the selection and development of cell lines under true bioreactor conditions. This ensures that only the most productive cell lines are taken forward into development with the confidence that they will perform just as well at production scale. 

Accelerate and Simplify Process Development

High Throughput Process Development Tools Enabling Effective QbD Strategies

ambr® 250 automated multi-parallel mini bioreactors enhanced with modern chemometrics tools enable fast and reliable development and optimization of your process. Seamless transfer to our pilot and production scale single-use bioreactor BIOSTAT STR® is ensured through our understanding of bioreactor design and scale-up principles.


High-Throughput Bioprocess Development

Kistler, Pollard, Lee, Streefland (2016) Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News (Vol. 36, No. 7) Apr 2016.

Bioprocess engineers are achieving better process understanding and more optimal cell culture conditions by using high-throughput scale-down methods and design of experiment (DOE) approaches. 

This bioprocessing tutorial explains how process development scientists can use the ambr® 250 automated bioreactor system to screen a wide process design space, while minimizing resources and materials.
