Integrity® PadReactor™ mini Small-Scale, Single-Use, Stirred BioreactorSource: ATMI LifeSciences
Intended as the newest member of the Integrity PadReactor™ System family, ATMI has developed the PadReactor mini bioreactor. This scaled-down version of the PadReactor system is perfectly suitable for feasibility studies, research, process development and small volume production of proteins, cells and viruses. Its innovative cube-shaped bag design incorporates a highly efficient mixing paddle and a strong sparging device for superior mixing capabilities, as well as improved gas transfer. These features make the PadReactor mini system a nice option for the cultivation of suspension cells and adherent cells microcarriers.
The PadReactor mini platform consists of a single-use bag fitted in a stainless steel container and connected to the process controller. The system is designed to make the bag installation fast and straightforward. On top of the bag holder, the mechanical mixing head is driven by a motor mounted on the system and can be easily coupled to the paddle. A top cover secures the placement of the bag assemblies, as well as the pH & DO probes. A transparent front cover enables the user to easily observe the process during the culture and gives access to the sampling port, temperature sensor and single-use pH and DO probes.
