DASGIP presents product innovations during Biotechnica 2007

04.10.2007
Online monitoring of optical density, expanded gassing solutions for small and pilot scale, and a special fermenting system for anaerobic cells

DASGIP AG, leading manufacturer of parallel bioreactor systems, will present a number of innovations at their booth during Biotechnica in Hanover.

OD4, an online monitoring module for optical density, offers fast and accurate measurement of biomass and cell growth in up to four vessels. OD4 utilizes small sensors and a proprietary signal processing algorithm to reduce the signal disturbance caused by gas bubbles in the media. These features make the OD4 module the best OD measurement solution for small scale operation.

DASGIP’s new software edition, DASGIP Control 4.0, offers freely programmable profiles in a very user-friendly operator interface, which makes working with the DASGIP system easier than ever. Other expanded automation features such as the “Triggering Automation Package“ and the parallel operation of up to 16 vessels, can enhance the efficiency of any laboratory.

DASGIP’s advanced gassing solutions have two new additions of mass flow controlled systems: MX4/1 system mixes oxygen, air, carbon dioxide and nitrogen and supplies to one output; while MF4 mixes four freely selectable input gases and supplies to four outlets. Both gassing systems provide safe and efficient gassing to pilot scale production and, with the use of external pressure sensors, can be used with cell culture bags.

DASGIP has also developed a new fermentation system especially for anaerobic microorganisms. Providing monitoring and control of the redox potential as well as temperature control up to 95°C the system has been designed to meet special requirements in biofuel development.

Two seminars will be given by DASGIP at Biotechnica: “Advanced Tools Meeting New Challenges in Biofuel Development“, which details the use of DASGIP’s technologies in biofuel development, will be given by Dr. Christof Knocke on 9th October at 12.00pm. A second seminar will be given by Dr. Jörg Schwinde on 10th October at 3.10pm on “Industrial Biotechnology and Tools for Process Understanding“. The DASGIP team cordially invites attendees to a traditional “Beer &Pretzels” reception on 9th October from 4.30pm in booth G25, Hall 9.

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
