Parallel bioreactor platforms such as the BioXplorer enable high quality data to be generated more quickly with a
compact footprint. HEL offers the smallest classically designed bioreactors available with working volumes from
just 20 ml. One challenge with highly instrumented, mini bioreactors is to make them easy
to handle while maintaining performance and scalability. The BioXplorer bioreactors have
been improved with features to reduce turn-around times between experiments and
The design changes involve the gas, liquid and other connections through the lid:
Welded Sparging Tube
The sparging tube is welded into the lid so it is always in the right place.
However, the sparger type and position can still be changed easily .
Welded Liquid Dosing Ports
A number of welded ports are provided, easy to clean but always in
position with easy connection of pump tubing.
Improved Agitation Features
The stirrer shaft is a thicker, solid steel rod which is welded into the lid – easy
to clean, always in the right place and no risk of bending. The bottom section
of the shaft allows different stirrer types (or multiple stirrers) to be fitted. This
design change has also allowed faster stirring speeds and higher KLA values
