DASGIP Launches Micro-bioreactor for High Throughput Screening

25.10.2007
DASGIP AG, a leading manufacturer of parallel bioreactor systems, announced the launch of a miniature bioreactor system for high throughput screening at Biotechnica, 9 – 11 October 2007, in Hanover, Germany.

The “DASGIP BioLector” has been developed by m2p-labs, Aachen, Germany, who entered into a partnership with DASGIP to bring the new product to market. Under the agreement, DASGIP has marketing rights in North-America and in Europe.


The DASGIP BioLector monitors cell growth and protein production in up to 96 wells online and in parallel. Additionally, pH or dissolved oxygen can be monitored in each well. Continuous shaking allows uninterrupted aeration by gas exchange between the cells and their environment. The BioLector provides an ideal gas atmosphere for different cell types.

With DASGIP BioLector, operators are able to screen multiple cell lines or strains for growth and expression levels in parallel. Working volumes of the 48- and 96-well plates range from 100µL to 1000 µL per well. Once the candidates of interest are selected, a tailored process can be developed and optimized in DASGIP Parallel Bioreactor Systems, which provide working volume from 35mL to 15L in up to 16 bioreactors in parallel. Therefore, the new parallel screening tool not only makes product development more efficient, but also rounds up DASGIP’s existing fermentation and cultivation solutions perfectly.

”Customers using the DASGIP systems will benefit extraordinarily in process development. With the new BioLector they benefit from higher efficiency in earlier phases of their value chain”, Dr. Matthias Arnold, CSO DASGIP. The figure above shows how DASGIP products improve and streamline research and process development.

About DASGIP:

DASGIP AG develops and manufactures technologically advanced Parallel Bioreactor Systems for the cultivation of microbial and mammalian cells at bench top and pilot scale. Process engineers, scientists and product developers from biotechnological, pharmaceutical and chemical companies as well as research institutions use DASGIP Parallel Bioreactor Systems for their biotechnological processes and benefit from increased productivity, high reproducibility, and ease of scale up, resulting in accelerated product development cycles. DASGIP is located in Juelich (Germany) and Shrewsbury MA (USA).

About m2p-labs:

m2p-labs GmbH was founded in November 2005 as a spin off of the department of biochemical engineering and the institute of materials in electrical engineering of the RWTH Aachen University. The company is specialized on micro reaction solutions in biochemical engineering. The first developed product is a unique quantitative micro reactor system for high throughput screening.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
