HABITAT photo ferment cctThe HABITAT photo ferment cct control unit package of the HABITAT research bioreactor is used to monitor and control the bioprocess. With the help of the LED panels included in the scope of delivery, the system can be used as a photobioreactor, for example for algae cultivation. The adjustment of the light intensity enables the simulation of the day-night rhythm. Furthermore, the package includes the control unit with all connection options for the gas supply, liquid addition, sensors and temperature control as well as a tablet for simple and clear operation of the bioreactor. In addition to the HABITAT cell package, you have the option of connecting CO2, conductivity and turbidity sensors.
Control and monitoring
The bioprocess and all associated test parameters can be easily controlled and monitored via the tablet attached to the control unit and with the help of the intuitive and easy-to-use software. Depending on the type of cultivation, you can choose between the operating modes batch, fed-batch and perfusion/continuous. The new Chaotic Mixing function ensures faster and more effective mixing when required. The 10.4-inch tablet allows direct access to all actuators directly on the main screen. A clear calibration management, a diagram overview and the complete documentation of the process round off the operation. A software version that meets FDA CFR Part 11 requirements is available as an option.
Built in mass flow controllers for 4 separate gas lines (for N2, O2, air and CO2) ensure precise, individually adjustable gassing, ideally tailored to the needs of your cells. Flow rates of 0,1-20000 cc/min can be achieved.
4 integrated Watson Marlow pumps, adjustable in direction and speed, give you the variability to pump in and pump out different liquids (like acid, base, anti-foam agent, feeding solutions).
HABITAT ferment cct enables the measurement of the following parameters by means of sensors:
• DO (dissolved oxygen)
• filling level
Constant and precise temperature control during cultivation is guaranteed by our circulation thermostats, such as the HRC 2 basic or control, which heat and cool.
