The SB200-X is an orbital shaken bioreactor for the cultivation of human, mammalian and plant cells in a single-use bag. A working volume from 50 litres up to 200 litres for the SB200-X ensures easy scale-up from microtiter plates to shaking asks and all the way up to 200 litres. This user friendly system can be easily deployed in research, process development or production.
The SB200-X was developed and tested in collaboration with ExcellGene SA (Monthey, Switzerland) and the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland).
+ Large capacity (200L working volume) single use bioreactor system
+ Cultivation of human, mammalian and plant cells
+ Fast, simple set up
+ Easy scale-up
+ Online measurement of pH and DO
Single-use bag for a fast and simple set up
The vessel accepts a single-use bag. This bag requires no additional mixing device, enables quick set up times and eliminates elaborate cleaning and sterilising procedures. Various ports are incorporated to allow feeding, inoculation, harvesting and sampling. The bag has built in optical sensors for pH and DO.
The orbital motion of the SB200-X ensures efficient liquid mixing. It allows high oxygen transfer rates with low shear forces. Mechanical stress on the cells is reduced thanks to bubble-free surface gassing with almost no frothing. This motion is particularly suitable for microcarrier cultivation. The SB200-X uses the unique Kuhner direct drive which provides acurate control of the orbital speed.
