ID Reactor - Microbial

Scaleup Ready Microbial Culture

Bacterial, yeast and insect cell cultures for biotech and pharma therapeutics are initially studied in process scouting devices such as micro-bioreactor vessels. Experiments with varying culture parameters lend insights into the selection of scaleup conditions for pilot and full scale manufacturing.


Real-time, non-invasive monitoring of pH and dissolved oxygen (DO) in the tri-station ID • Reactor Microbial provides actionable insights for screening culture conditions and getting your process scaleup-ready.

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

How Does the ID Reactor - Microbial work?

The ID • Reactor – Microbial 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 – Microbial 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.
