Fermentation Units 10l
Fermentation units of 10L real: 4 units
Those biofermenters (B. Braun 2X Biostat E 10 litres and 2X Biostat ED with DCU) are used for the propagation of microorganisms such as yeasts, bacteria and moulds at pilot scale. Several peripherals are connected to the fermenter in order to control the growth conditions.
Those installations are suitable for aerobic or anaerobic growth. Furthermore, those units allow doing an enrichment in oxygen by means of a gas mixer (air, nitrogen, oxygen). The tank can be sterilized in situ at 121°C. The temperature is regulated by means of either a double envelop or an internal heat exchanger depending on the model. The propagation can be realized in the 2 ways: batch or fed-batch. This unit is connected to an acquisition platform (MFCS) allowing the collection of the different fermentation variables (T°, pH, PO2, feedings …).
Those units allows to optimize the production conditions of the biomass (probiotics, starters, biofongicides…), the metabolites (organic acids, ethanol, …) or the proteins (enzymes, recombinant proteins…) at pilot scale. They can also be used as inoculums for the 100 or 200L fermenter.
