Flexible and Compact Stir Vessel Bioreactor System

The Agilitech benchtop bioreactor system accommodates two stir vessels in one of the smallest footprints available. With a brand-agnostic design, you have the option to choose your own vessel configuration, preferred sensors, as well as the automation and control platform.

Choose from jacketed or single wall vessels in 3 L, 5 L, 7 L, 15 L, or 20 L sizes and an extensive array of standard and engineered options for both cell culture and microbial applications.

The system is delivered complete with your preferred sensors, whether Mettler Toledo, Broadley James, Hamilton, or other. Designed with state-of-the-art open architecture, the control system accommodates additional scales for vessel weight and additional sensors for perfusion applications. And it can be delivered with your preferred automation and control system.

Simultaneous control of two vessels

Ideal for microbial and cell culture vessel configurations

Brand-agnostic design

State-of-the-art automation based on S88 standards

Delivered with your preferred control system: DeltaV, Rockwell Automation, or other

Flexible operation: manual to fully automated batch operations

Up to 8 pumps for fluid management

Up to 8 mass flow controls for gas management

Durable stainless steel housing

Easy access to agitator motor adapters

State-of-the-art automation and control

The bioreactor system controls are based on S88 standards to support manual operation to full batch control. It can be delivered with DeltaV, Rockwell Automation, Inductive Automation Ignition, Wonderware, or other control system – the choice is yours.

The controller interface is also incredibly easy to use and offers you added convenience by bringing the most commonly used functions and data to the top layer of the screen, which eliminates endless clicking and digging to access data. The ISA-88 batch-compliant structure ensures the same ease of use and feel of the system regardless of the platform.
