Media optimisation, clone screening, strain characterisation, bioprocess development
The RoboLector is a liquid handler, which can be combined with the BioLector to provide an automated fermentation platform.
The RoboLector has two pipetting channels, which can be used to autonomously prepare media compositions. During fermentations, feed solutions can be added to the microtiter plates.
The pipetting volume range is 10 – 950 µL and 16 deck positions are available on the worktable.
Microbial and cell culture (batch, fed-batch, perfusion and continuous cultivation), media optimisation, process optimisation and screening studies.
We have the following Bioreactor set up –
6 x 500 mL Autoclavable MiniBios (2 for anaerobic, 4 for aerobic culture)
1 x 7 L Autoclavable Bioreactor with EZ-Control platform interchangeable with a 3L cell culture stirred disposable bioreactor system for insect cells
All bioreactors have the following components:
