Features of BioFlo/CelliGen 115
Readily Adapts as Your Needs Change
Grow virtually any cell type: aerobic and anaerobic microbes, yeast, insect, plant and mammalian cells.
Water-jacketed and heat-blanketed autoclavable glass vessels are offered in four sizes, 1.3, 3.0, 7.5 and 14.0 Liters (total volume).
All 115 systems are pre-programmed with both cell culture and fermentation operating modes for total flexibility. Switching between modes automatically adjusts gas flow and speed ranges.
BioFlo 115 AccessoriesA wide variety of options and accessories provide the versatility for customization to your exact needs. Choose from eight vessels, three motor drives, specialized impellers, up to four Rotameters with multiple gas flow ranges, a Thermal Mass Flow Controller (TMFC), and more.
Control and view up to three independent bioreactors/fermentors from a single touchscreen. Additional utility station(s) are required for simultaneous operation of a second or third vessel.
Control screens are easy to understand and use – making the BioFlo/CelliGen 115 one of the most user-friendly systems on the market today.
The same control software is featured on all New Brunswick benchtop fermentors and bioreactors, for easy transition to our larger-scale systems.
CelliGen 115Four-gas mix option automatically mixes two, three or four gasses in cell culture mode for optimized cell growth.
Two-gas mixing option enables mixing air and oxygen in fermentation mode.
Highly-customizable gas flow options allow you to design a system specific to your needs. Choose one, two, three or four manual Rotameters of various flow rates. Or select a digital TMFC.
Built-in "cascade" feature automatically maintains DO setpoints. Control DO with agitation, gas and/or additions.
Adjustable P-I-D values for pH and DO are automatically defined by vessel size or can be fine tuned for the ultimate in control flexibility.
We make firmware updates quick and easy by offering free downloads from our website. No service technician or down-time.
Compatible with NBS BioCommand® software for advanced control strategies and data logging.
