Microbial Bioreactors and Fermenters

Microbial cultures require highly developed specialized capabilities such as increased demand for aeration and agitation. The high growth rates result in rapidly changing conditions which require fast response times, accurate sensors and reliable controls for pH, DO, temperature in order to control the culture conditions.

Sartorius’ expertise in automation and engineering and detailed understanding of biopharmaceutical and industrial processes ensures robust, reliable and scalable systems suitable for even the most demanding microbial cultures. Advanced analytical capabilities from our PAT portfolio including online pH, off-gas and biomass measurement allow predictive process modeling and control. Intuitive software and powerful chemometrics tools assist with process understanding and enable a Quality by Design approach for optimization and mapping of the process design space.

Our systems are harmonized, allowing you to scale easily between the different volumes and bioreactor types helping you to speed up your process development and increase likelihood of success from screening to pilot | clinical trials manufacturing. Our systems are designed with a high level of functionality to be able to adapt to challenging processes.
