Process Optimization & Production Design

We support you from the start on the way to realizing your idea - we are at your disposal with our know-how starting from the pre-clinical phase. We cooperate with a large number of academic institutions and network our customers from the pharmaceutical and biotech industry with the right partners from university and non-university research.

Our contribution goes far beyond just process development. Through our many years of experience, we have acquired a profound understanding in the area of process optimization and production design, with which we support our customers with advice and support. We thus also close the gap between the process as such and the appropriate production facility. Careful consideration of all legal requirements and standards is part of our daily practice.

kLa Measurement

Optimal O² transport leads to maximum product formation


Microorganisms and cell cultures need optimal conditions to grow in the bioreactor. The kLa value shows how well microorganisms are supplied with oxygen in the biotechnological process.

kLa Measurement - Optimal oxygen transport leads to maximum product formation.

Your Advantages

The method developed by ZETA to determine the kLa value for oxygen is a real asset for the design and optimization of bioreactors

  • 1

    kLa value measurement in real time

  • 2

    Design and planning of the optimal bioreactor

  • 3

    Characterization and optimization of existing bioreactors

  • 4

    Adaptable for different gas supply systems

  • 5

    Realization of different agitator geometries using 3D printing

CO₂ Stripping



The bioprocess is influenced by numerous parameters that are interrelated in complex ways. An enormous challenge for designing a bioreactor for the optimal process! With our method for determining the kLa value for CO2, we can reliably track the removal of unwanted carbon dioxide from the bioreactor.

Carbon dioxide Stripping - for removing CO2 from the bioreactor.
