Multi-Parallel Bioreactors

For Scalable and Efficient Cell Line Selection and Process Development

Small-scale, multi-parallel bioreactors provide more process information for culture comparison in less time. Multiple experiments can assess different clones or cell lines, as well as the effects of pH, temperature, feeding, media, gassing rates and inoculation densities.

Ambr® multi-parallel bioreactors can handle your upstream process steps, from clone or cell line selection to process optimization, ensuring scalability because process data translates well into the 2L Univessel® SU and larger Biostat STR® systems.
