Biostat® Cplus

The Stainless Steel Fermenter | Bioreactor for Your Laboratory

The Biostat® Cplus is a Sterilizable-In-Place (SIP) Fermenter | Bioreactor developed for the cultivation of microorganisms and cell cultures. Culture vessels with working volumes of 5 L, 10 L, 15 L, 20 L and 30 L are available. With more than a thousand installations worldwide, the Biostat® Cplus is the most successful stainless steel bioreactor of its class and is now available in the revised 3rd generation with DCU controller.

Top Features

  • Choice between electro or steam heating for operation and sterilization; cost-effective integration into existing infrastructure
  • Powerful DCU automation platform with newly added functions, e.g. Advanced DO controller, gravimetric feed control and up to four mass flow controllers allowing more sophisticated gassing strategies
  • Safe to use due to maintenance-free agitator motor and automatic sequences for sterilization and pressure hold test
  • Compact, mobile design saves valuable laboratory space

Innovative Technology for Your Process Needs

  • Process development and scale-up
  • Seed production

Maximum working volumes of (in 2:1 and 3:1 diameter ratio):

  • 5 L (benchtop version, only 2:1 ratio)
  • 10 L
  • 15 L
  • 20 L
  • 30 L
  • O2 Enrichment
  • Additive Flow
  • Advanced Additive Flow

Advanced DO Controller
In comparison with the conventional DO control cascade, the Advanced DO Controller supports the sequential and parallel operation of up to 5 slave controllers. The controller can be easily configured using the touch screen. Results are graphically displayed as a polygonal curve, which is easy to understand. As a result, you benefit from maximum flexibility for optimal oxygen regulation in your process.
