Sartorius Stedim Biotech’s BIOSTAT A is a compact bioreactor and fermenter with accessible peristaltic pumps, probe ports, and supply connections.

Sartorius Stedim Biotech’s BIOSTAT A is a compact bioreactor and fermenter with accessible peristaltic pumps, probe ports, and supply connections. The ergonomic design features an aeration module that provides automatic flow control, eliminating the need for the manual adjustment of flow meters.

The bioreactor system controls pH and dissolved oxygen (DO) by aeration with four gases: air, O₂, CO₂, and N₂. The system is equipped with digital pH and DO probes, and the option to monitor and control the system with a tablet or smartphone in any location, inside or outside of the lab. The system is available with single-walled borosilicate glass culture vessels of one-, two-, or five-liter working volumes.

The microbial fermentation system contains two gas lines, air and O₂, for DO control. The system is equipped with a chiller to remove heat from the device, eliminating the need for a cooling water system.
