Compact CIP/SIP Fermenters 15L-50L-100L

SYSBIOTECH Pilot-scale Fermenter is a reliable solution for working with microbial process for scientific research, small biotech production facilities as well as for scaling-up.

Standard «ready to use» solutions include all components needed for convenient operation with microbial cultures. After connecting the Fermenter you can start using it right away without having to buy any accessories.

SYSBIOTECH Pilot-scale Fermenters have fully aseptic design and can be validated easily. C-BIO2 control system, universal for any volume of Fermenter greatly simplifies scale-up process and allows for easy transfer of fermentation data.

For your convenience, all the necessary piping is installed on open stainless steel mobile frame. This helps to save space in your facility and simplifies access for maintenance of the Fermenter.

All wetted surfaces are made of AISI 316L stainless steel with surface finish of 0.6 μm, to allow for effective CIP (cleaning-in-place).

Automated and user-configurable CIP and SIP (cleaning-in-place and sterilization-in-place) processing is standard included. A user-friendly program tool allows you to create your CIP and/or SIP sequence by defining its steps and set parameters. By combining sequences you can build a fully automated procedure for your entire application, maximizing day to day process consistency and ensuring best results.

C-BIO2TM control system features:
  • Universal control system for SYSBIOTECH’s fermenters, independent of volume.
  • You can use either separate control system for each culture vessel, or one control system for several vessels (parallel experiments, individual vessel control).
  • The system is based on SCADA controller, constructed in conformance with industrial automation standards.
  • Simple and intuitive user interface provides quick access to all controllers and data.
  • Automation of the entire cultivation procedure using pre-programmed ‘sequences’ –for better control of your bioprocess.
  • The SCADA software ensures easy and reliable data management and control across all platforms.
  • Four level password control is included, to allow for administrator, manager, supervisor and user level authorization.
