Fit-for-purpose bioreactor control system

The innovative Agilitech dual bioreactor controller is compatible with glass stir vessels up to 20L and rocking bioreactors with single-use bags up to 20L. Designed with flexibility in mind, the controller is adaptable to both fermentation and cell culture configurations, and can be used with any manufacturer brand bag or glass vessel, including the agitator motor adapters for different types of vessels and impellers. The system is also brand agnostic when it comes to sensors, giving you the freedom to choose the right sensor for your unique bioprocess, whether that’s Mettler Toledo, Broadley James, Hamilton, PreSens, or another sensor brand.

Control two bioreactors simultaneously with advanced automation and control

The controller can be configured with up to 8 pumps (4 for each bioreactor) and up to 8 mass flow controllers for gas measurement (4 for each bioreactor), offering simultaneous control of two vessels. Components are protected with a durable stainless steel housing and compact footprint saves valuable bench space.

Designed with state of the art open architecture, the control system accommodates additional scales for vessel weight and additional sensors for perfusion applications. Controls are based on S88 standards to support manual to full batch control of the operation, future-proofing your bioprocess as your needs change.
