Solaris R&D Benchtop Bioreactors Venus
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.
