RTS-1 Personal bioreactor

+ Free Shipping

RTS-1 is personal bioreactor which utilize patented Reverse-Spin® technology that applies non-invasive, mechanically driven, low energy consumption, innovative type of agitation where cell suspension is mixed by the singleuse falcon bioreactor tube rotation around its axis with a change of direction of rotation motion resulting in highly efficient mixing and oxygenation for aerobic cultivation. Combined with a near-infrared optical system it is possible to register cell growth kinetics non-invasively in real time.

Reverse–Spin® mixing principle in 50 ml falcon tubes allows to achieve high kLa (h-1) up to 450 which is essential for efficient aerobic cultivation
Individually controlled bioreactor accelerates optimization process
Possibility to cultivate microaerophilic and obligate anaerobic microorganisms (not strict anaerobic conditions)
Reverse–Spin® mixing principle enables non-invasive biomass measurement in real time
Near-infrared optical system makes it possible to register cell growth kinetics
Free of charge software for storage, demonstration and analysis of data in real time
