Bioreactors & Fermenters

Complete Scalable Bioreactor Platform From Cell And Strain Line Development to Commercial Manufacturing

Sartorius supports every customer with a fully scalable and interchangeable range of single-use or glass and stainless steel bioreactor solutions. The array of automated multi-parallel mini bioreactors and classic benchtop bioreactors supports fast and reliable development and characterization of your processes throughout all phases. Seamless transfer to pilot and production scale bioreactors are ensured by Sartorius thorough understanding of bioreactor design and scale-up principles, well-thought-out automation concepts and harmonized control strategies for oxygen, pH, temperature and feed addition.


The Sartorius industry-leading range of bioreactors have automated hardware and software features that allow users to develop consistent and reliable operating protocols for all stages of development to manufacturing.


The bioreactors’ robustness along with integrated and readily available cell retention devices allow cultivation of cells at ultra-high densities - to intensify cell culture processing.


Ambr® and Biostat® provide an integrated allied suite of technologies which allow you to use Quality by Design (QbD) principles to gain predictive results and to scale up effectively.
