The control of culture volumes in bioreactors is critical to ensure optimum conditions for cell growth and to achieve high cell densities.
HEL has developed a system that is based on proven technology but is more traditionally used with large scale fermenters.
The Bioreactor Inventory Control (BIC) constantly measures ONLY the volume of the bioreactor contents. The BIC is also immune to effects of foaming that can hinder accurate level detection. The BIC technology can be easily added to any reactor, either to the head plate or remote from the bioreactor, and is the size of a matchbox.
The system can accurately maintain the volume of any bioreactor regardless of size or culture medium. It’s design also allows easy adaption to HEL’s parallel mini-reactors, where loss of material is often critical.
