ID Reactor - Mammalian

Scaleup Ready Mammalian Cell Culture

Protein expression in mammalian cells produces therapeutics with all the correct post translational modifications and native structure. Mammalian cell cultures for biotech and pharma therapeutics are initially studied in process scouting devices such as micro-bioreactor vessels.


Due to high cost, fragility and low therapeutics production, mammalian cell cultures require careful scaleup design for transitions from bench to pilot and full scale manufacturing. Real time, non-invasive monitoring of pH and dissolved oxygen (DO) in the tri-station ID • Reactor-Mammalian provides actionable insights for screening culture conditions and getting your process scaleup-ready.

  • ID • Reactor-Mammalian with integrated ID • Readers and impellers for agitation, bioreactor vessels with ID • Sensors, ID • Converter and ID • Data Hub.

How Does the ID Reactor - Mammalian work?

The ID • Reactor – Mammalian is the right testbed for getting your culture scaleup ready.
  • ID • Sensor pH and ID • Sensor DO are securely attached to the bottom of the bioreactor vessels.
  • Three ID • Readers are embedded into the ID.Reactor – Mammalian platform. Bioreactor vessels with ID • Sensors are placed on top of ID • Readers. Actuated impellers are inserted into the vessels for agitation.
  • ID • Data Hub software loaded onto your laptop collects pH and DO data through the ID • Converter for each of the bioreactor vessels.
