Available models

Designed to meet your specific needs, Biostat® B covers a wide range of applications, extending from use as a flexible basic unit for preclinical research to a fully qualified system that complies with the requirements of a validated GMP environment. You can use our Biostat® B for animal, plant and insect cell cultivation as well as for microbial fermentation.

  • Stirred, reusable and single-use culture vessels - all controlled with one DCU tower
  • Single or twin set-up for control of one or two culture vessel
  • Gassing system comparable to our Biostat STR® with up to four mass flow controller

The Biostat® B-DCU is a fermenter | bioreactor specifically designed to accommodate the requirements of process optimization and characterization in the biotech and biopharmaceutical industry. It provides enhanced functionality and an unrivalled level of options for cell culture and microbial processes making it the ideal scale-down model for your large scale process

The Univessel® Glass is our platform cultivation vessel for all Biostat® benchtop bioreactors. It is available in 1 L, 2 L, 5 L and 10 L working volume. Benefit from the new design and the backward compatibility – all existing probes, dip tubes, spargers and impellers fit also into the new Univessel® Glass.

The Univessel® SU is a stirred tank single-use bioreactor with a working volume range from 0.6 - 2 L. It is entirely single-use from vessel to sensor and can easily be connected to your existing bioreactor.

It combines the proven, scalable design of glass bioreactors and the fast turnaround of single-use systems. Univessel® SU can be easily integrated into both new and existing bioreactor controllers in your lab.

It can be used interchangeably with glass vessels to help you efficiently manage peak workloads despite challenging timelines. Since you discard the complete vessel after one use, you no longer have to bother with the hassle of cleaning, autoclaving and re-installation.
