Fermentation Units 2l



Fermentation units of 2L real: 6 units

Those biofermenters (B. Braun Biostat 2 litres) are used for the propagation of microorganisms such as yeasts, bacteria and moulds at labscale.


Several peripherals are connected to the fermenter in order to control the growth conditions. Those installations are suitable for aerobic or anaerobic growth. The fermentation vessel can be sterilized in an autoclave. The temperature is regulated by means of a double envelop. The propagation can be realized in the 3 ways: batch, fed-batch or continuous (chemostat). 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 an intermediary scale between the Erlenmeyer and the pilot scale.
