Single-use bioreactor is designed for process development or pilot-scale cell culture
EMD Millipore’s Mobius CellReady 50-L single-use, stirred tank bioreactor is designed for process development and pilot-scale mammalian cell culture. The rigid base and top panel design of the bioreactor process container enables simple, reliable, and robust one-way installation. Mobius SensorReady technology allows the user to configure process monitoring at the point of use and enables integration of new sensor technologies. The system is available as a turnkey solution complete with Finesse automation or as modules that can be integrated with the customer’s platform of choice.
Meissner Filtration Products
Containers support disposable biocontainer assemblies
Meissner Filtration Products’ QuaDrum containers for Meissner’s TepoFlex 3D biocontainer assemblies have a square design rather than the industry standard cylindrical design. The design makes efficient use of floor space, and can be used with a stainless steel dolly for intra-facility transport. The reusable, polyethylene containers are chemically resistant and can be sanitized. Slotted lids offer access to tubing and filters or solid lids completely cover the assembly.
