RTS-1C Personal Bioreactor

Reference: RTS1C

RTS-1C is personal bioreactor which utilize patented Reverse-Spin® technology that applies non-invasive, mechanically driven, low energy consumption, innovative type of agitation where cell suspension is mixed by the singleuse falcon bioreactor tube rotation around its axis with a change of direction of rotation motion resulting in highly efficient mixing and oxygenation for aerobic cultivation. Combined with a near-infrared optical system it is possible to register cell growth kinetics non-invasively in real time.

  • Reverse–Spin® mixing principle in 50 ml falcon tubes allows to achieve high kLa (h-1) up to 450 which is essential for efficient aerobic cultivation
  • Individually controlled bioreactor accelerates optimization process
  • Possibility to cultivate microaerophilic and obligate anaerobic microorganisms (not strict anaerobic conditions)
  • Reverse–Spin® mixing principle enables non-invasive biomass measurement in real time
  • Near-infrared optical system makes it possible to register cell growth kinetics
  • Free of charge software for storage, demonstration and analysis of data in real time
  • Compact design with low profile and small footprint for personal application
  • Temperature control for bioprocess applications
  • Active cooling for rapid temperature control, e.g. for temperature fluctuation experiments
  • Task profiling for process automatization
  • Cloud data storage to remotely monitor the process of cultivation while at home or using a mobile phone
