Continuous Operated Shaken Bioreactor System.

 

Description

COSBIOS (COntinuouS BIOreactorS) enables the user to run parallel continuous fermentations very easily. The investment costs of the COSBIOS system are low when compared with stirred fermenters. Up to six parallel Bioreactors can be installed on a single shaker-tray.Applications for COSBIOS include: tracer experiments, metabolic flux analysis and strain stability tests.

Performance characteristics

  • Up to six parallel bioreactors on one shaker
  • Low media consumption and low liquid volume
  • Time saving, compared to a stirred bioreactor
  • Six different states of equilibrium at one time

Method

This new system consists primarily of a specially designed flask with two inlets, one for gas (air) supply and one for medium supply. There is also a combined outlet on the side of the flask for exhaust gas and the fermentation broth. The circular motion of the flask on the shaker causes the fermentation broth to reach the outlet port and leave the glass flask.
