Scaling-up from a laboratory scale to pilot plant and small scale production can be simplified with a consistent bioreactor design and the scalable control solutions. Depending on your desired output, you can choose between a bench scale or pilot plant systems.
Applikon’s concept of modularity (using standard modules to customize the functions of the bioreactor) is extended to the stainless steel pilot plant bioreactors as well. For scaling-up purposes the range of the Bio Bench and Pilot Systems, designed and built to the latest standards on hygienic processing and CGMP and GAMP validation requirements, complements the laboratory-scale bioreactor systems.
Applikon offers CIP systems ranging from fully manual control to fully automated. The Standardized Steam-in-place bioreactor systems are available with approximately 140-liters volume and custom-built units can be supplied up to 2,000 liters total volume.
