ambr® 250 high throughput perfusion

ambr® 250 high throughput perfusion bioreactors include a single-use perfusion filter and process contacting pump components. They are compatible with any cell retention device. Filters are available in a range of pore size variants that cover the typical range of cell culture perfusion processes and applications. The single-use perfusion bioreactor includes a high-efficiency sparger significantly enhancing oxygen supply to the culture and capable of supporting high cell densities.

Download this article that explains why process analytical tools (PAT) are a key requirement to promote the adoption of intensified processing. PAT technologies include real-time process analysers such as univariate sensors and multivariate analytics, process control and multivariate tools. They are necessary for the control of very high cell density cell cultures and downstream processes.

In this article, the authors present data from a client showing the BIOSTAT® STR, single-use bioreactor to be highly effective for performing continuous cell cultures at the 2000-L scale. So efficient was the oxygen transfer within the BIOSTAT® STR it raises the possibility the client could perform a very demanding process in the single-use format that had, until this point, only been feasible within a stainless steel bioreactor.
