The OmniFerm® product line includes individual and parallel fermenter systems for the controlled cultivation of bacteria, yeasts, and other plant and animal cell cultures. The devices stand out for their particularly compact design and small footprint, which allows for placing multiple reactors on a single laboratory table.
The product line closes the gap between shaking flasks and large-scale laboratory fermenters. Results from shaking flask cultures can now be validated in parallel processes with minimal substrate use and major time savings. The product line makes it easy to scale up and OmniFerm® bioreactors offer many customer-specific equipment options and high flexibility.
LabVision® is a user-friendly and highly adaptable automation software. Its integrated table-based EasyBatch process control allows for easy programming of even the most complex tests.
The basic unit consists of a glass vessel and a stainless steel lid with the required connections and an exhaust air cooler. Vessels are available in volumes ranging from 275 mL to 16 L. The system integrated exhaust gas analysis unit charts the progression of OTR, CTR, RQ, OT, CT, and growth rate online. Thanks to an innovative solid state temperature control system without heat exchange media, in which the bottom panel of the container provides heating and cooling, no external cooling water supply is needed for reactor sizes from 0.6 to 2 L.
