Product Details


Benefits of I-Series Industrial Scale Bioreactors and Fermentors:

  • Flexibility & willingness to accept most fermentation & cell culture application projects to 30,000L + scales.
  • Top or bottom mounted agitation & various impeller configurations.
  • Agitation online absorbed Torques (Nm) and Power (W) available.
  • Re-sterilizable addition system (utilizing steam bridge.)
  • Double jacket (side/bottom), heat exchangers & recirculating pump for most efficient heat transfer & optimal temperature control.
  • Automatic mechanical seal lubrication with steam condensate loop.
  • Tri-Clamp stainless steel pipe fittings.
  • 19’’ colored touch screen industrial HMI utilizing powerful & intuitive SBC16 controlling software.
  • HMI can be located anywhere: attached, remotely located, or multiple stations can be installed.
  • Digital online DO, pH, conductivity, &/or ORP sensor management utilizing Hamilton ARC Modbus communication.
  • Cell density: OD or VCD/permittivity probe integration available.
  • Other parameters available including weight, CO2, etc.
  • Peristaltic pump options for feed, pH control, etc.
  • Multiple mass flow controller integration.
  • Flexible options for data export & management.

User-friendly Software

Solaris controlling software offers a simply laid out, yet powerful platform for experimental design planning and process control. The graphical user interface enables the intuitive selection & adjustment of control functions.

Extracted data is compatible with Window Excel, but in addition, Solaris offers a platform where fermentation data can be easily exported in real time & thus managed. This software is included in supply and can be installed on an unlimited number of the client’s PC or laptops.


  • Home screen with Multi-level password protection.
  • Synoptic page also allowing manual operation of components (pumps, valves etc.)
  • Controller page allows easy access to setpoints, current values, control modes, PID customi-zation, alarm limits, etc.
  • SBC-16 manages process phases such as: stand by phase (free use, maintenance); pre-cultivation phase (automatically entered after sterilization, managing the pre-innoculum); and cultivation phase.
  • Trends page allows real time process variable monitoring, comparison, data export, etc. On the graphical interface, up to 6 process and/or set point variables can be viewed simultaneously. Dynamic zooms and graphical configurations within set time frames can be changed interactively.

Solaris Fermentation Manager

Extracted data is compatible with Windows Excel, however, Solaris has also developed a platform where fermentation data can be easily exported in real time & thus managed in various protocols.

Solaris Logic Parser

The Solaris Logic Parser plug-in, integrated to SBC-16 as standard, gives users the additional capability of customized control by relating all available process variables with common conditional statements.
