Mini Bioreactor RTS-1C

Mini Bioreactor RTS-1/C

Personal bioreactor which provides “Reverse-Spin” type of agitation and logging of microbial growth in 50 ml tubes in real time.

+4°C bis +70°C with cooling

Part Number: LTF00230

Bioreactor with Reverse-Spin-Technology

  • Innovative mixing due to reverse spinning of the sample around its own axis
  • Due to innovative mixing technology it is possible to measure optical density of the probe in real time
  • Software has been developed to store, display and analyse the data in real time
  • RTS-1C is compact device with low profile and small footprint for personal application
  • Temperature control allows to use RTS-1C as an incubator, e.g. for cell growth
  • RTS-1C has a function of active cooling and temperature profiling via software
  • The ability to change parameters such as temperature, RPM and “Reverse-Spin” frequency, allows to achieve consistency and reproducibility of results
  • Programmable Cycling/profiling of cultivation parameters such as temperature, RPM, “Reverse-Spin” frequency
  • The ability to remotely monitor the process of cultivation while home or using a mobile phone

Software features
