BioLector XT Microbioreactor

GET MO2RE DATA. NOW. With or without O2

bioreactor xt microreactorThe BioLector XT high-throughput microbioreactor enables real-time evaluation of biomass, fluorescence, and other key cultivation parameters for aerobes and anaerobes—to quickly provide deep insights into your bioprocess development.

Building on trusted BioLector Pro technology, the BioLector XT is based on a standard ANSI/SLAS (SBS) microtiter plate (MTP) format, and operates with non-invasive, pre-calibrated optical sensors.

Disposable 48-well MTPs enable online measurement of biomass, fluorescence, pH and DO, while patented microfluidic technology supports simultaneous pH control and feeding.

An optional microfluidic module eliminates manual liquid handling—no tubing/pipetting required, as everything is part of the gamma-radiated ready-to-use plate

Additional features include:

  • Capability to fully customize cultivation protocols to cover a broader spectrum of applications
  • Enables free combination of different feeding and pH control strategies over one cultivation run
  • Updated BioLection software provides an intuitive user interface designed for multi-user environments
  • New gassing head reduces gas consumption and acts as an air-tight anaerobic chamber that can be used with the microfluidic module, eliminating need for anaerobic tents

Innovative New Gassing Head

  • Enables fed-batch experiments under anaerobic conditions
  • Gassing with O2 within a range of 1% - 100% and with CO2 within 1% - 12 %
  • Reduces gas consumption to a few mL/minute
  • Optional humidification of gases reduces evaporation

Optional Microfluidic Module

  • Unleashes full potential of the BioLector XT
  • Complements online monitoring function with well-specific pH regulation/feeding
  • Enables use of 2 reservoir wells per 4 cultivation wells
  • Microvalves allot liquids at nanoliter-scale

“Plug-and-play” Plate Design

  • Real-time kinetics out of 48/32 parallel cultivations
  • Customizable feeding strategies (batch, fed-batch, bolus, continuous)*
  • Control of pH on-the-plate with pre-calibrated optical sensors*
  • Small working volume (800 – 2400 μL)
*Functionality requires optional microfluidic module

Intelligent BioLection Software

  • Intuitive user interface supports multi-user environments
  • Free programming of all control parameters
  • Open system enables live data downloads
  • Fast processor ensures rapid download of experiment data
