Frequently Asked Question(s): 

What is a fermenter in microbiology?

A fermentor / bioreactor is essentially a container where cells -- both microbial and mammalian, can grow happily and live lives to their fullest. It is like a five-star hotel offering total control over the most critical cell structure parameters, including: temperative, dissolved oxygen, pH, carbon dioxide, cell density, glucose and metabolites concentration, etc. Air filters and sterile connections ensure that no contaminants are let in through the vessel. Growing cells in a bioreactor is the best way to study them and to obtain standardized / reproducible protocols.

What materials are your bioreactors and fermenters made of?

Solaris autoclavable benchtop bioreactors are manufactured in borosilicated glass and stainless-steel AISI 316.
