BioFlo 120, Eppendorf, Germany

Product Information

The BioFlo 120 is a bench-scale bioreactor/fermentor system perfectly suited for all levels of research and development. The system was designed to be flexible to meet the wide-ranging needs of scientists today. 24 interchangeable heat-blanketed and water-jacketed autoclavable vessels are available, along with BioBLU Single-Use Bioreactors ranging from 250 mL to 40 L working volume. Digital Mettler Toledo® ISM sensor technology is fully integrated allowing the user to choose between pH, redox, dissolved oxygen (polarographic and/or optical), and carbon dioxide measurements without the need for additional equipment. A high-precision expanded range thermal mass flow controller is available providing the capability for low flow mammalian cell culture through high-demand microbial processes on a single controller.

Use the given vessel sizes to find out which gas flow rate is best for your fermentation or cell culture runs.
