Bacteria and Cell Culture Processes

Bioreactors are used in the manufacturing process of biopharmaceuticals such as antibody drugs. This equipment immobilizes biocatalysts such as enzymes in insoluble carriers then washes them in a reaction solution to isolate useful compounds.

Controlling factors such as temperature, pH, pressure, substrate and oxygen concentrations as well as agitation speed helps to maintain the reaction conditions inside the vessel ensuring efficient use of the biocatalyst.

The flow rate of gas such as oxygen or carbon dioxide in the vessels is managed depending on the culture, and the HORIBA STEC Mass Flow Controller accurately controls and maintains a constant flow into the vessel.
