Product Information

The BioFlo 510 is a compact sterilizable-in-place fermentation system ideal for pilot to small scale production processes. The modular design features a wide variety of standard options allowing this system to be flexible enough to meet most process requirements.

Gas flow
› Various combinations of one, two, three or four TMFCs:
0.06  –   3 SLPM
0.3  –   15 SLPM
0.6  –   32 SLPM
1  –   64 SLPM
› Overlay (valve only)

Exhaust line
› Exhaust condenser
› Manual or automatic pressure control

Impellers
› Rushton-type – Used commonly for robust cell lines such as bacteria, yeasts, and algae, where maximum OTR is desired. Provided as standard on BioFlo 510 fermentors
› Pitched-blade – Commonly used with mammalian, insect or other shear sensitive cell lines for batch, fed-batch or continuous cultures. Produces axial and radial mixing.
› Marine – Commonly used with mammalian, insect, or other shear sensitive cell lines for batch, fed-batch or continuous cultures. Produces axial mixing

Sensors
› Single or redundant pH/DO
› Redox
› Foam/level

Addition and sampling
› Resterilizable sampling valve
› Resterilizable addition valves (4 max)
› Resterilizable addition/harvest valve with dip tube (2 max)
› 1.5 in sanitary fitting 7-port septum
› Addition vessels (glass/stainless steel)
› Sterile sampling assembly
