Single-Use bioreactors are increasingly favored for the economic advantages they offer. Many mammalian cell based biotech producers are moving to disposable modules, pre-sterilized and qualified according to regulatory requirements. Benefits of single-use bioreactors include faster facility set-up, reduction of down time, simplified validation, and more efficient use of plant floor space. Disposable bioreactors greatly reduce the risk of cross contamination in multi product facilities.
Applikon offers a selection of single-use bioreactors in three basic formats:
- Flexible bag bioreactors
- Rigid stirred tank bioreactors
- Flexible stirred tank bioreactors
All bioreactor designs offer measurement and control of important process parameters.
