The unique Venus fermenter offers the added parameter of pressure control on an autoclavable, bench-top platform! Venus is available in a 2 liter vessel with working volumes of 0.5 - 1.5 L, parallel control of up to 24 reactors is available. Maximum operating pressure is 2 bar.

Solaris bench-top bioreactors utilize powerful features, such as:

  • Benefits of digital process sensor integration utilizing "smart" Hamilton Dissolved Oxygen, pH, Redox (ORP), & Conductivity probes.
  • Modular "plug & play" integration of Hamilton Incyte Viable Cell Density (permittivity/capacitance) & Dencytee Optical Density sensors.
  • Other modular "plug & play" additional parameters to the PCS include dCO2, turbidity, weight, additional pumps, etc.
  • Leda needle free sampling system for risk free sampling.
  • Gas mixing:
    Thermal Mass Flow Controller in entry model
    Gas mixing through TMFC + solenoid valves or numbers of TMFC
    Automatic gas mixing algorithms for simplified controls (4-gas, 3-gas, O2 enrichment, N2 enrichment)
    Toro, fluted and sintered spargers
  • The Leonardo software platform is powerful, user friendly, & intuitive by offering a graphical user interface for intuitive selection of the many software functions. Multiple available basic & advanced features can be combined for the optimized control of complex processes. The Logic Parser plug-in allows customized conditional & loop control based upon the system's installed process parameters.

The Solaris developed platform also enables easily managed fermentation data, which can be customized, & also compatible with Windows Excel. Leonardo software is included in the cost of a standard fermenter or bioreactor package & can be installed on an unlimited number of PCs, laptops, tablets, etc.

Other Venus Features:

  • Parallel control of up to 24 units with one HMI utilizing LEONARDO software.
  • Gas mixing with up to 5 TMFC
  • 23’’ (single unit) or 27’’ (multi system) touch screen HMI.
  • Remote software access via PC, tablet, and/or smartphone.
  • Remote control after sales support & assistance.
  • Powerful and accurate agitator utilizing a brushless DC motor, with ranges from 1 to 2000 RPM.
  • Online absorbed Torques (Nm) and Power (W) measurements relative to agitation for indirect density/viscosity indication of the culture.
  • Safety pressure relief valve.
  • Compact and modular PCS (350x350x350 mm)
  • N.4 Watson Marlow pumps as standard with speed control.
  • Vessel is fully removable and cleanable from the thermal jacket for autoclave.
