Bioreactors, the Benchtop Infors Labfors 5 Cell


The Labfors 5 Cell is an easy to handle, flexible and and upgradeable benchtop bioreactor for volumes from 0.5 L up to 10 L.

The Labfors 5 Cell is assembled with applications in mind and has an extensive list of choices and options to optimize for a specific microbial fermentation and cultivation strategy. For example, a single use vessel option adds flexibility. Culture in batch, fed batch, and continuous modes are possible.

Primarily used for Mammalian cells, Insect cells, Viruses or Vaccines and Cultures from 0.5 to 10 L. Applications include high density cultures for protein production, process development, process optimization, scale up, scale down, statistical studies, process analytical technology (PAT), growth studies, anaerobic cultures, Halophile strains and brewing research.

Precise control or monitoring of temperature, stirrer speed, pH, p2, antifoam/level, feed, gas mix, gas flow, with 16 other channels free, for each vessel.

The design and construction of the vessels, with no welded parts, make the Labfors 5 Cell ideal for GMP applications.

Four high precision pumps per vessel are included for feed, acid, base and antifoam/level/harvest, ready for applications such as fed batch or continuous culture.

Features of the Labfors 5 Cell:
  • Faster results with optimized handling
  • Flexible configurations designed and optimized for specific applications
  • Space saving compact design, with a footprint of 465 × 465 mm for a fully equipped 10 L bioreactor
  • Integrated OPC server for unlimited connection
  • Aseptic sampling
  • Touch screen for precise control of up to 6 bioreactors, with optional parallel bioreactor option
  • Eight fixed parameters per vessel, sixteen free
  • Interchangeable vessels with working volumes from 0.5 to 10 L, with stainless steel top plate including many industry standard ports for a wide variety of sensors as well as options such as draft tubes and spin filters
  • Round bottom cell vessels feature pitched blade impellers, a ring spargers and sampling tubes
  • Vessels design ideal for GMP applications
  • Slow speed bottom drive magnetically coupled stirring system with speeds up to 300 rpm
  • Open frame gas supply with up to 5 mass flow controllers
  • Exit gas cooler, to minimize liquid loss
  • Four high precision pumps per vessel standard, simple removal and autoclaving with vessel without worrying about tubing
  • A single wall vessel with electric heating pad and cold finger allows for gentle heating and cooling to a maximum of 95 °C, or a double wall glass vessel with water circulation provides view of culture and maximum heat transfer for rapid temperature changes, to 60 °C
