Microbioreactor rapidly handles microbial strains, clone libraries and cells


Micro-Matrix offers 24 independent bioreactors in microtitre plate footprint

Applikon Biotechnology\'s micro-Matrix microbioreactor offers an integrated, easy-to-use, and cost-effective technology for the rapid handling and growth of large numbers of microbial strains, clone libraries, mutant banks, and cells.

The system, from the Netherlands-based developer of bioreactor systems from laboratory to production scale, offers 24 independent bioreactors in a cost-effective microtitre plate footprint. Dissolved oxygen and pH can be controlled in each individual bioreactor through the addition of gas and liquid. Temperature is controlled individually in each bioreactor by the integrated cooling and heating system.

The micro-Matrix offers a true scale down of small-scale bioreactors. The bioreactor’s square well cassette design is based on the popular SBS-format microtitre plates and seamlessly integrates into lab automation robots. The PC-based interface offers simple, intuitive interaction for advanced process control in each of the 24 bioreactors.
