Eliminate Contamination Risk and Save Time with Single-use Bioreactor Sampler
The new Bioreactor Sampler™ from Aseptika enables sampling from bioreactors and fermentors in around 15 seconds with the added benefit of eliminating the risk of contamination.
Monitoring, assaying and recording parameters off-line are an essential part of running and maintaining a bioreactor or fermentor.
Often, the environment in a laboratory is far from sterile or clean, so taking samples from a bioreactor can be the cause of bacterial, viral or chemical contamination of the vessel. Mammalian cell cultures are particularly at risk of contamination because of the rich media used and the length of time for which the culture is often run. Losing a culture due to contamination is costly. Not only is the media expensive but the time lost in restarting the bioreactor/fermentor can put important projects in jeopardy.
The Bioreactor Sampler™ (patent applied for) has a unique system that withdraws samples through its non-return valves. Firstly, flush the sample line into a waste collector, SNAP the single-use valve, SAMPLE into the sample syringe and then SEAL the USP Class VI tubing and remove the syringe. It all takes just 15 seconds!
