Easily configure your glass autoclavable bioreactor to changing process demands
- Simple set-up and easy handling
- Wide range of volumes to fit many applications
- Easy cleanability by electropolished finish of the product
- Interchangeable modules to tailor the systems to research demands
The Applikon Bio is easy to upgrade if a change in research activities occurs, whether it involves cell culture applications or microbial culture applications. Because of the modularity and flexibility, you can always adapt the system to
changing process demands. This results in low initial investment and low running costs.
The stirred tank reactor (STR) is the most widely used bioreactor type. Getinge Applikon multi-use bioreactors and fermenters are available in 2 / 3 / 5 / 7 / 15 / 20 liter total volume.
Advances in bioreactor washing
The programmable Getinge Ultima Lancer labware washer with specialty washer rack for the multi-use 1-3 L bioreactors assures thorough cleaning, better reproducibility and reduced labor.

The glass dished bottom vessels are made of borosilicate glass to guarantee:
- resistance to thermal shock
- excellent corrosion resistance
- smooth, non porous surface for easy cleaning
- optimal transparency for visual inspection of the culture
High quality parts
The system is built according to the specific demands of a process using an extensive array of high quality components. All metal parts of the bioreactor are constructed of stainless steel 316L. There are no welded parts in the bioreactor topplate, which simplifies the sterilization of the bioreactor after each run.
Up to 0.5 barg
The glass bioreactor vessels can be used up to 0.5 barg (7.5 psig) of overpressure.
