The BioFlo 310 is an intermediate bench-scale bioreactor that is typically used as a convenient platform for growing seed cultures for use in inoculating larger pilot-scale bioreactors. The 10L glass vessel is autoclavable and supported with pH, dissolved oxygen, and temperature probes, allowing the control over these process parameters as a seed culture develops. Rates of oxygenation in the range of 200 mmol/Lh are achievable along with basic feeding capabilities.
- 1x 10L vessel
- 3-10L working volume
- Additions: 3x pumps as needed
- Advanced controls: 1x acid, 1x base, 1x feed (basic)
- >>200 OTR [mmol/Lh]
- Hosts: bacteria, yeast, filamentous fungi, algae
- Can be used as seed fermentor for 300L campaigns
