Research Reactor

for Cell Cultures and Bacteria

The goal of the project was to develop a research reactor in a modular design that allows easy and quick changeovers. This is needed to enable more flexible production with different products being made in the same system. A large number of attachment points for measuring devices and sensors enable full monitoring of the production process.

  • Product/service category: Bioreactors and Fermentation systems

  • The challenge was to create a multi-purpose reactor for use with both animal and non-animal cells. CFD simulations were used to develop a special vessel design and to integrate an agitator that can be adapted for the different processes.

  • An OPC interface and the use of soft sensors ensure precise process control.

  • Scope of supply: basic engineering, detail engineering, production, installation automation, qualification

  • Main equipment: one 40/60L vessel, magnetic agitator, gas and liquid filters, pumps, heat exchangers, temperature control unit

  • Project country: Austria

  • Completion time: 8 months
